The Shwedagon Pagoda is systematically covered in scaffolding, and gold gilding is being carried out with over 11,000 coated gold sheets by a group of 30 people starting from 29 March, according to the statement of the Shwedagon Pagoda Board of Trustees.
Besides, the implementation of engraving Gavisite copper plates will continue to carry out according to climatic condition, and gold coating around plantain bud will also be implemented.
It was announced that scaffolding works would be carried out to implement the remaining work under the Shwedagon Pagoda Gold Plate Donation Plan (2018-2019), which was suspended due to the COVID-19 crisis in 2020 after receiving sermons from the venerable senior monks on 11 March.
The Shwedagon Pagoda was reopened to the public on 8 March, and about 70,000 pilgrims have visited the pagoda to date. It is reported that the Board of Trustees of the pagoda has been making arrangements to change new statues at the birthday corners and to offer modern spot lights to the pagoda at night. — MNA
