Two Sanu halls, or halls connecting the two main halls of the Royal Palace or monasteries, are being built in the eastern archway of Kyauktawgyi Pagoda at the foot of Mandalay Hill.
These Sanu halls, which are included in the seven significant buildings in the Royal Palace of Mandalay, connect Sudhamma Public Rest Houses built by King Mindon in 1859 AD.
Managing Director Thudhamma Dr U Kyaw Win, Thudhamma Theingi Daw Myint Myint Than and the family of Mann Myay Yazar Co Ltd covered the costs for rebuilding the Sanu halls with the aim of renovating seven ancient significant buildings donated by King Mindon and enabling local youths to know more about Myanmar’s cultural heritage, said wellwisher U Kyaw Win.
“I am delighted at grasping opportunities to rebuild the religious and cultural structures,” said the wellwisher.
Maha Pathana ordination hall and Thudhamma public rest house are nearly complete. The Sanu halls construction started in September and it is expected to complete the halls in the last week of December.–Min Htet Aung (Mandalay Sub-printing House)
