Landmark Tourist Spot
The Maha Wizaya Pagoda is a pagoda located on Shwedagon Pagoda Road in Dagon Township, Yangon, Myanmar. The pagoda, built in 1980, is located immediately south of the Shwedagon Pagoda on Dhammarakhita Hill. The enshrined relics were contributed by the King of Nepal, while the pagoda's hti was consecrated by Ne Win, the country's former leader. The construction of this particular pagoda is believed by some scholars to have been a form of merit-making on the part of Ne Win.The pagoda was built to commemorate the convening of the First Congregation of All Orders for the Purification, Perpetuation and Propagation of Sasana in 1980, which formed the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee, a governmental regulatory body of Buddhist monks.

  • Nice and very tranquil compared to nearby Shwedagon Paya. It's also a good spot to relax in the shadows on a hot day.
  • Unusual Pagoda, features astrological signs. Well worth a visit, not too crowded
  • Peaceful place nearest to The Shwedagon Pagoda
  • Smaller pagoda (than Shwedagon) but mystical, worth the visit.
  • Mahar Wizaya Pagoda is located near the Southern Stairway of Shwe Dagon Pagoda in Dagon Township. So when you visit Shwe Dagon Pagoda be sure to make time to also spend time at Mahar Wizaya Pagoda. It is open every day from 5:00am to 10:00pm.
