Upon completion of the conservation work on King Kyansittha’s stone inscription at the Shwesandaw Pagoda in Pyay Township, the restoration of the inscription chamber and the revision of its translation will be undertaken, according to Director U Myint Zaw from Bago Branch of the Department of Archaeology and National Museum.

Furthermore, as the Shwesandaw Pagoda Buddhological Museum has been upgraded to a digital museum, steps will be taken to add voice-overs, background music, and bilingual explanatory captions in English and Myanmar for both displays and photo records.

The stone inscription of King Kyansittha dates back to 445 ME (1083 AD) and is written in the Mon language, detailing the life story of the king and the history of the Shwesandaw Pagoda. — ASH/MKKS
