The pagoda is a very sacred place. The structure of the pyramid is also quite interesting. There are also interesting things on the pagoda. The building is quite independent. You can see many beautiful things around here.
In addition to the super-large stone scriptures, King Mindong also built a super-large Buddha statue, which is the Kyauktawgyi Paya (Kyauktawgyi Paya) at the entrance of Mandalay Hill. In the main hall of this Buddhist temple, a pale green marble Buddha statue sits peacefully. This giant Buddha is carved from a whole piece of marble weighing 800 tons, in order to transport it from the quarry north of Mandalay City. It took tens of thousands of workers to reach the Buddhist temple for 13 days. By the way, in addition to this super-large Buddha statue, in the side hall next to it, you can also find a super-large stone bowl that is also carved from a monolithic stone.
Very distinctive pagoda, typical Southeast Asian style
The pagoda is located at the south entrance of Mandalay Hill. It was built from 1853 to 1878. The enshrined Buddha statue is carved from a single piece of marble weighing 800 tons. It is said that transporting the marble from the Irrawaddy River took a total of 13 days and tens of thousands of workers. The inner walls and stone pillars of the stupa are all inlaid with small diamond-shaped pieces of glass, which are magnificent under the sun and lights. There are also 80 small pagodas around the main pagoda, each with a Buddha statue, but in order to protect the Buddha statue from damage by travelers, they are closed with iron gates.
I will see many people come here to turn the tower, I think it is worth a visit.
