Nga Phe Chaung Monastery - Inle

Nga Phe Chaung Monastery

Nga Phe Chaung Monastery, located in Inle Lake, is an impressive wooden monastery built towards the end of 1850s. The monastery is famous for its resident cats that jump through the hoops, taught by monks. It is the oldest and largest monastery in the Inle Lake, built on teak stilts with traditional architecture and carvings. One of the better reasons to visit is to see the modest collection of Buddha images in Shan, Tibetan, Bagan and Inwa styles. Just as impressive as the Buddhas themselves are the tall, highly ornate, wood-and-mosaic pedestals and cases built for the images. Such pedestals are the specialties of Shan and Northern Thai Buddhist art and those at the monastery are over 100 years old.
