Renovation works are underway for the ordination hall of Mahamuni Buddha Image located in Kyauktaw Township, Rakhine State for K8,000 million.
U Nyo Tha Hla, chairman of the Mahamuni Buddha Image Board of Trustees, said that 65 per cent of the renovation work has been completed. Led by MraukU Sayadaw Ashin Varaminda, the main building and related buildings were completed last year in 2021 with donations of about K5,000 million. It has been under renovation since February.
The roof of the building, including the related areas, was built about 30 years ago and is currently deteriorating.
“Currently, 65 per cent has been completed. The main building was roofed before the storm Mocha hit. We have to do everything because the main dormitory was destroyed by the storm Mocha. Also, due to the storm, the roof of the temple tilted, so the whole thing will have to be demolished and repaired.
This year, the number of pilgrims from the city and from far away has decreased. People from the city and people from far away donated to the construction. Donations are low, so there is a delay in repairing the temple. All will be prepared for K8,000 million,” said U Nyo Tha Hla.
In this renovation, the 48 pillars of the big building are being repaired with reliefs, including the image of Lord Buddha preaching to King Sanda Thuriya during the Danyawady period of Rakhine, with stone carvings and flower carvings, and the pillars of four related buildings are being repaired as concrete pillars. — ASH/KZL
