Stupa unfinished Massive 10 kilometers north of Mandalay is known by different names: Pahtodawgyi Mingun Mingun Paya, Folly Bodawpaya, Mantalagyi and Great Pila, among certain circles of writing.

It was the product of a king who was not satisfied with the construction of anything normal size … or simply enormous.
Phophecy stop project

The Zedi is 50 meters high, a third of their height expect if he finished.

Grand King Bodawpaya project, which began in 1790, was arrested because of a prophecy that says, “When the pagoda was built, the Moksoe dynasty will come to nothing.”

Hey, wait! The king thought to himself. That’s my dynasty!

Although often interpreted as saying that the nation can accomplish alone, another interpretation of prophecy indicates that the king himself would die. These things have been taken very seriously in the former Burma. The ruling families uprooted a capital several times because of the terrible prophecies.

This particular prophecy was a good year for attention. Bodawpaya had used thousands of prisoners of war and slaves to build, and that took a heavy toll on individuals and the state. Many more stress and that could have a revolution on your hands.

Still Standing : What emerges now is a monstrous creation that is impressive in its own right, incomplete or not. The ruins are praised as the largest pile of bricks in the world”, and they could have been large grouphad the earthquake in 1839, he finished his work.
So there are two massive cracks in the front of the pagoda. Partially collapsed remnants of massive Chinthe or pair of liondogs Burma, stand guard over the pagoda before the mighty Irrawaddy river. The working model in the vicinity of what would have seemed Mingun Paya had all inclusive is a structure called Paya Pondaw five meters, and is definitely worth a look.
The treasures Mingun : King Bodawpaya often described as a bit of a kookwasnt even close to being satisfied with a half-built temple, however. Sometime around 1809, he launched what is still the largest bell in the world and dedicated to the temple. Mingun bell weighs 90 tons, and it really is not as big as the Tsar Bell in the Kremlin in Moscow.

Leave some time to stroll through the village of Mingun and check all of the wonderful hand-me-down from the impressive average Bodawpaya king. The area is full of spectacular temples, and quiet town on the Irrawaddy is a pleasure in itself.
