Carved from a single piece of marble, it's very impressive. Especially when you consider that it was moved from the quarry to it's current position without the aid of heavy machinery. Very cool.

One who look for peace must visit this place once. Because of the stone’s nature, the place around Buddha is quite cool. We must see the white elephant which is unique from other Asian elephants, located opposite to the Pagoda.

This proportional marble image of Buddha is also one of the attraction of Yangon. It's situated near Yangon International Airport and the compound where white elephants are kept. The way they carved this pagoda is pretty amazing!
