A pagoda, which has been conserved after being hit by the 2016 earthquake, collapsed yesterday in Bagan.
About 70 percent of the pagoda No. 1066, which is a type of cave housing a Buddha statue, was damaged in the collapse.
The cave pagoda is 26ft by 26 ft and 40 ft height. It was also renovated in 1996.
The 2016 earthquake also damaged the pagoda and it was put in the third-priority list to be renovated.
“Most of the part which were reconstructed in 1996 collapsed,” according to the Bagan Nyung-U District Information and Public Relations Department.—Myanmar Digital News
