Thank you!
This ‘early offering shrine’ is the most important of the temples on Sagaing Hill’s Southern Crown and the first you’ll come to on climbing the southern stairway. Its central 97ft-high gilded stupa was originally built in 1312. Legends claim that the structure magically appeared overnight, built by the king’s faithful minister Ponya in a superhuman flurry of activity inspired by a magical Buddha relic that he’d found in a betel-nut box. The myth fancifully claims that Ponya himself was of supernatural parentage, his father having ‘flown’ to Sagaing from the Himalayas millennia before, arriving to a curious communion with the Buddha, seven hermits and a flower-bearing orangutan. Burmese genealogy is never boring
