U Min Thonze Pagoda is another pagoda on the top of the Sagaing Hill, besides Soon U Ponya Shin pagoda and Sagaing Buddha Cave. We can translate the term “U Min Thonze” into “30 Caves Pagoda”.
It was ordered to construct by revered monk Padugyi Thangayaza during the 11th century. There are 45 Buddha images seated in a semicircular colonnade, their hands in the “calling earth to witness” mudra.
