THATBYINNYU PAGODA - MYANMAR


Thatbyinnyu Pagoda was built by King Alaungsithu in mid-12th century. Located just inside the southeastern corner of the old city wall, Thatbyinnyu is Baganís tallest pagoda at almost 217 ft ( 66 m ) and represents a transition from the Mon period to a new architectural style that would soon be followed at the Sulamani, the Gawdawpalin and at Htilominlo. Inside there are stone supports which one held the pagoda's huge bronze bell. Northeast of the pagoda stands a small Tally Pagoda, which was built of one brick per 10,000 bricks used in the main hall.
