As one famous place named Naga Pwet Hill (Mud Volcano) located in Ward 1, Minbu Town in Magway Region, it is crowded with travellers from all over the country, said U Aung Win, Chairman of Naga Pwet Hill Multi-Purpose Landscaping Administration Body.
The history of Naga Pwet Hill indicated that Nammada Dragon King’s son and daughter, Nanda and Thusita, were killed by an eagle when they came to pay homage to Lord Buddha as He was having a nap on an emerald bed at the Emerald Temple donated by King Sakka in Minbu on His way back from the Sandalwood Temple in Sunaparanta region.
The mountain where the eagle bit and carried the dragon brother and sister was first called Thein Kok Hill and then Theingon Hill. The place where the dragon brother and sister fell from the eagle and died was named Naga Thay. Then they suffered pains and rolled over seriously at the place where Dragon Lake is located at present.
The story of two dragons initially started at the Naga Pwet Hill. At present, the hill and its vicinities have been renovated to build halls for taking rests and guesthouses for crowds of visitor from far during the open season and holidays. Like the Shwesettaw Pagoda Festival and other famous places of Minbu Township, the Naga Pwet Hill and its vicinities become one of the crowded destinations in Magway Region. — Zaya Htet (Minbu)/GNLM
