According to the Pagoda Festival Organizing Committee, repair and maintenance of the damage to Mann Shwesettaw Pagoda caused by the Mocha Cyclone and the flow of Mann Creek during the rainy season will be undertaken keeping in line with ancient artworks.
The landslide between the Upper Koekhangyi Pagoda and the 28 Buddha Images Pagoda will be built into a retaining wall and the drains will be restored.
Also, two small bridges will be extended on the three-mile road at the entrance of Mann Shwesettaw Pagoda. The pillars and the seven tiers of Lower Settawya will be repaired and the slope from Koekhangyi to Upper Settawya will be upgraded by the extended slope.
The reports on repair works will be submitted to the Magway Region government and will be implemented before the next pagoda festival.
The Mann Shwesettaw Pagoda Festival will commence for nearly three months from 25 January to 17 April and it is usually crowded with nearly 1,500-2,000 pilgrims per day. — TWA/MKKS
