Yoke Sone Kyaung

      Yokesone kyaung lies on the other side of the main road from Kyauk Padaung. The Monastery Yoke Sone Kyaung built in 1882 is famous with its spectacular woodcarvings,ancient Buddha images,utensils of Yadanabon 19 century period and the museum of Myanmar famous writer U Pone Nya.

      The hall sports a new corrugated metal roof to protect the carved wooden structures below from rain or stray sparks from cooking fires. Only two sides of the 23-meter-long hall actually bear the original 120-year-old sculptures, which include nearly three-dimensional carvings of 19th century court life, jatakas (stories from the Buddha’s life) and other tales.

      Some panels are missing and there are some newer wood carvings mixed in with the old, but those that remain are lovingly cared for by the monks and caretakers, who apply oil regularly to prevent cracking.

      Salay is about 120km from Bagan to the south. Kyauk Padaung and Chauk are the towns on the way to Salay from Bagan. It is a day-trip from Bagan.
