                        Sightseeing Kengtung


Tucked away in the far eastern corner of Shan State, Kengtung is a sleepy but historic centre for the state's Khun culture, surrounded by Wa, Shan, Akha and Lahu villages. It is a very scenic town as it is built around a small lake and is dotted with ageing Buddhist temples and crumbling British colonial architecture.


WAT JONG KHAM: features a tall gilded zedi topped by a gold hti inlaid with silver, rubies, diamonds, sapphires and jade, and hung with tiny gold bells. Legend says Jong Kham dates to a visit by Gautama Buddha and that the zedi contains six strands of his hair.


WAT PHA JAO LUNG: 19th century temple which gets its Burmese name Maha Myat Muni from a 1920 replica of the Mandalay Maha Myat Muni image.


WAT PHA THAT JOM MON: located on the hill south of town, this wat features an older wood and plaster sanctuary with good tinwork.


WAT MAHABODHI VIPASSANA: a forest-style monastery where monks practise intensive meditation.


HAW SAO PHA KENGTUNG: this is considered the most outstanding example of Shan style palace architecture in Myanmar. The stucco and teak structure combining Buddhist temple-style pavillions with Islamic-looking domes, is said to have been inspired by the suggestions of a visiting Muslim Indian prince.


CENTRAL MARKET: sells mostly fresh produce and household goods to people from the whole area including nearby hill tribes. Some handicrafts are also available.


WATER BUFFALO MARKET:daily on the western outskirts of town. An interesting place to wander and watch the negotiations.
