The Maravijaya Buddha Image, the tallest of its kind in the world and situated within the Buddha Park in Dekkhinathiri Township, Nay Pyi Taw Union Territory, was full of monks, nuns, and visitors who came to pay homage on 1st Waning of Wagaung.
Pilgrims explored the Maravijaya Buddha Image, traditional Thudhamma public rest houses, Agga Dhipati Sasana Beikman ordination hall, and other religious and leisure areas in the Buddha Park and practised meditation. Donations from pilgrims, including K240 million donated by well-wishers led by the Secretary Sayadaw of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee, were also made.
The health workers provide the necessary healthcare services for the monks, nuns, and visitors to pay homage to the Buddha image, and the Myanmar Red Cross and fire brigade members are also assisting the elderly people who have difficulty walking by transporting them with wheelchairs so that they can pay obeisance comfortably.
For the convenience of pilgrims, no entrance fee will be collected. Starting from 4 September, it will collect camera fees for phones bearing cameras, making videos, and other video recording activities. Moreover, there will also be a parking fee for private vehicles that park in the pagoda precinct. The Buddha image is open to the public from 6 am to 8 pm daily. — MNA/CT
