Kaunghmudaw Pagoda

Kaunghmudaw Pagoda in Bagan

Beyond the town of Sagaing lies this huge pagoda. Also known as Rajamanisula and modeled after the Mahaceti Pagoda in Ceylon, this enormous dome rises 46 meters in the shape of a perfect hemisphere. Built in 1636 to commemorate Inwa's establishment as the royal capital of Myanmar. There are 812 one and a half meters high stone pillars at the base of the pagoda and the 86 lines of Myanmar inscriptions on the slab record details of the pagoda's construction.
