Sights & Landmarks in Naypyidaw
- King Statues. Three enormous sculptures depicting the three most important kings in Burmese history: Anawrahta, Bayinnaung and Alaungpaya U Aung Zeya.
- National Herbal Park. Exhibits of plants having medicinal applications from all of the major regions of Burma. There are thousands of plants at the park, representing hundreds of different species. Free.
- Naypyidaw Safari Park.
- Naypyidaw Zoological Gardens. Opened in 2008 with some 420 animals and a climate-controlled penguin house. It is the largest zoo in Burma as most of the animals were relocated from the zoo in Rangoon at the same time as the government officials were making the same journey. When a well known comedian consequently announced that "all our animals are going to Naypiydaw", he was predictably imprisoned.
- Uppatasanti Pagoda (Peace Pagoda). =A prominent landmark in Naypyidaw. The pagoda, which houses a Buddha tooth relic from China, is a replica of Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon and stands 100 m high. It also has a Maha Hsutaungpyae Buddha image in the Maha Pasadabhumi Gandhakuti Chamber, four jade Buddha images in the pagoda's hollow cave; a 33 m high flagpole; Bo tree garden with Maha Bo Tree and the images of the 28 Buddhas, Marlini Mangala Lake with the chamber of Shin Uppagutta, and a pagoda museum.
