Hsinbyume Pagoda, Mingun

Must see · Architectural Building · Tourist Spot
See white, wave-like base of Hsinbyume Pagoda, dating back to 1816. Prince Bagyidaw dedicated the pagoda to his wife, whose name translates as "White Elephant Princess." As you admire the pagoda, inspect the seven concentric terraces, which symbolize seven mountain ranges around Mount Meru. The top of the pagoda represents the Mount Meru, the mythical center of the universe according to Buddhist, Hindu, and Jain mythology. Keep an eye out for the niches around the pagoda, which feature small statues of mythical creatures, such as serpents, ogres, and spirits. Climb to the top of the pagoda to enjoy sweeping views over the nearby river. Use our Mingun trip planner to arrange your visit to Hsinbyume Pagoda and other attractions in Mingun.
