  Pa Auk Tawya (Forest Monastery) is situated near the Pa Auk Village.

  It is a Buddhist monastery in the Theravada tradition, with emphasis on the teaching
  and practice of both Samatha (tranquility) and Vipassana(insight) meditation.

  The main road from which to enter the forest is at the 9th Mile Mawlamyine-Mudon Highway.
  The name 'Pa Auk Tawya' is also used by other forest monasteries in the area where
   their alms-round resort is also the Pa Auk Village.
   Facilities of Pa Auk Meditation Centre: Pa-Auk Tawya comprises 3 monasteries
   namely, the Upper Monastery, the Middle Monastery and the Lower Monastery.
  The main monastery is the Upper Monastery.
  This is of relatively recent origins, dating back to the early 1980s.
  It covers a range of hills along the Taung Nyo mountain range.
  This is where the large two-storey meditation hall and sima,
  alms-giving hall (Pindapatasala), refectory, clinic, sick-bay,
  Pali School, library building (which houses the Sangha Office, computer room, dormitory),
  the Foreigners Registration Office, the reception hall and the dwelling of the
  Venerable Pa-Auk Tawya Sayadaw (collectively referred to as the Sayadaw kuti ),
  and over 220 kutis (single meditator huts), among others, are located.
  Only men reside in this monastery.
  The Middle Monastery is situated on flat land and is relatively small.
  It has a modest meditation hall and sima, a cetiya (pagoda), and a small number of kutis.
  Only bhikkhus reside in this monastery.
  The Lower Monastery is the original monastery of Pa-Auk Tawya.
  Situated here are a small two-storey meditation hall and sima, a Dhamma hall, 3 cetiyas,
  the office of lay administration (commonly known as the Lower Monastery Office),
  clinic, kitchens, and kutis for bhikkhus and male lay yogis.
