New gold plates to be offered to Shwedagon Pagoda

The Shwedagon Pagoda Treasurer’s Board of Trustees received the sermon from the senior venerable monks regarding the remaining work to be carried out under the Shwedagon Pagoda Gold Plate Donation Plan (2018-2019) yesterday morning in Shwedagon Pagoda.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis in 2020, the implementation of engraving more than 12,000 Gavisite copper plates to the remaining areas of Shwedagon Pagoda was suspended. At present, as a group of 50 people can be gathered, the pagoda will be covered in scaffolding to carry out gold coating, and to screw gold plates step by step on necessary areas of the pagoda under the guidelines of the senior venerable monks, according to the statement of the Shwedagon Pagoda Treasurer’s Board of Trustees.—MNA/GNLM
