  • The Great Grotto (Maha Pasana Guha), also known as the seven-leaf grotto, was built in 1952 with Cabaye Boudhanath, in the same group of buildings, modeled after the first Buddhism in India's seven caves (Satta Panni). The Great Grotto has 6 entrances, symbolizing the sixth great end, the two sides of the front door entrance are all made of jadeite jade, feeling the value of extraordinary, sincere heart is no ratio; the grotto is 139 meters wide and 110 meters deep, inside like a basketball ball court, the hall is 67 meters, and the width is 43 meters. In the sixth Buddhist Myanmar in Yangon, in 1954, 2,500 monks couples gathered here to recall the Buddha's teachings in Pali and complete the Sanzang (Tipitaka). The first Buddhist episode was held within months of the Buddha's nirvana. The monks couples recite, edited and tested all the Buddhist texts, the Sanzang (Three pitakat).
