Shwe Ba Taung - Doorway to the Caves

At Shwe Ba Taung masons working in the late-19th and early 20th centuries dug straight down into a flat outcrop of rock, creating a series passageways and staircases up to ten metres deep in the cliffside.

Shwe Ba Taung’s excavated caves are flanked by huge, ornately carved doorways, some a full six metres tall, and all painted in bright pastel colours.
