KYAUKTAWGYI PAGODA - MYANMAR


The Kyauktawgyi Pagoda (pagoda of the “Great Marble Image”) was built by King Bagan in 1847 on the model of the Ananda Temple at Bagan. The pagoda is located near the southern entry to Mandalay Hill. The Image was carved out of a huge single block of marble stone. The statues of 80 Arahats (the Great Disciples of the Buddha) are around the Image, 20 on each side. The carving of the Image was complete in 1865.
