The ancient village of Salay is your to explore! Located less than two hours south of Bagan, this small hamlet is replete with monasteries, pagodas and colonial buildings. Known mainly as a religious center, there are over 50 monasteries in this settlement of about 10,000 residents. Pay a visit to the renowned “Yoke-Sone-Kyaung”, a cultural heritage site set on the eastern bank of the Ayeyarwaddy River; don’t forget to spend a moment admiring its stunning wood carvings. There are several other wooden 19th century monasteries, and some Bagan-era shrines that date back even further, that are worth making a visit to. The colorful religious shrines set off the austere British-era colonial buildings in the same area.
