This gallery is, in fact, just a simple hut having eye-catching opuses made of just oils and pastels. But the fine details of the artifacts are wonderful and impressive. The painters of the canvases are Shwe Maung Thar (he is the same man who painted the ceiling panels of the Central Hall of Shittaung Paya) and his son Khine Minn Tun.
