Interior of Kabar Aye Pagoda near Chatrium Hotel Royal Lake

“Kaba Aye” in Myanmar translates to mean “World Peace”. It is to this - world peace - that the Kabar Aye Pagoda has been dedicated to. It is a more modern pagoda, whose significance comes not from its history but from its functionality.

The pagoda was built in 1952 and is where the Sixth World Buddhist Synod took place. This site plays an important part in the lives of the people of Myanmar who are devoted followers of Theravada Buddhism. The atmosphere at the pagoda is one that offers a sense calmness and serenity while creating a peaceful environment for monks as well as devotees who come to visit.

Towering to a height of nearly 36 metres, the main pagoda is encircled by a circular platform where one will find five porches with traditional style designs and intricate craftsmanship. Apart from monasteries, the Kabar Aye Pagoda compound is also home to the Maha Pasana Cave and the Buddhist Art Museum.
