Inle lake Myanmar; some more attractions near the lake

Shwe Yan Pyay Monastery
The town closest to Inle lake, is Nyaung Shwe which, is an hour's drive away from the airport (25 km from the Heho airport). Nyaung Shwe is known not only because it serves as a connecting point for tourists going to Inle lake, but also because of the beautiful, not to be missed, Buddhist monasteries that are located near this town.

Shwe Yan Pyay Monastery: This 200 year old beautiful wooden monastery was a treat, it was gorgeous.

There was another, ordinary from the outside, structure near the Shwe Yan Pyay monastery. Who would know that this ordinary structure would house such breathtakingly beautiful interiors! The corridor and the glass art was absolutely stunning !

Here are some pictures from the monastery and the other structure with the most amazing interiors. Pictures are courtesy Soma Jha again:)
