The renovation processes on masterpiece of Hanthawady era works of Maha Bawdi Shwe Gugyi (Golden Cave) Pagoda which is the Hanthawady Bodh Gaya Thattahtana, are underway without losing its original works, according to Bago Region Minister of Economic Affairs U Tin Oo.
The Maha Bawdi Pagoda of Hanthawady Bodh Gaya Thattahtana is located at Oktha 8 ward in Bago, Bago Region. It is known as the earliest Budh Gaya Pagoda that was built in Myanmar.
“Bago’s Shwe Gugyi Pagoda is notable as the earliest Budh Gaya Pagoda in Myanmar. It was built in the Hanthawady era, and the king who built it was the King of Dhammazedi. It was built in the same model as Budh Gaya in India, and it is estimated that it was around 1479 AD. Now, since it has been around 500 years, the damage is being repaired. In particular, the glaze works of the Hanthawady era, which are recorded in international museums, will be seen in this pagoda, so the very early Myanmar glaze works will also be preserved in their original state,” U Tin Oo said.
The Maha Bawdi Pagoda of Hanthawady Bodh Gaya Thattahtana in Bago Township in Bago Region was built in 15th Century Mon style glaze works. There is also Shwe Gugyi Pagoda stone inscription plaque chamber in the southwest corner of the Pagoda. In this chamber, ancient large Myanmar stone tablets including English, French, and Portuguese inscriptions can be observed. — ASH/TKO
