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.
