This pagoda is massive. The pagoda was neglected for many centuries and it was destroyed by an earthquake in 1930. The current pagoda was restored last century. Restoration was really poor. The floors are very dirty. The gilded ornaments are ordinary. At the time we visited last year, it was again under restoration and it was not possible to climb it. There is a little, Bagan style miniature Ananda old temple close by. It is interesting to see it.

This was built by the King Ba Yin Naung. The distinctive of this pagoda is participating ladders that's men can go to the upper part (the middle of pagoda) where we can see over view of the whole Bago city. There is a small portrait of this pagoda and ancient pagoda which look like the pagoda in Bagan nearby the palms as in the middle of Myanmar within the conpound.

One special thing about this stupa is it's colour. The upper part is white, which isn't common. The other thing is that you can climb stairs to go almost to the top, but only if you are a man. I know :-(. I did that and the stairs are very steep, but the view up there is very cool, because you can see over the city and surrounding forrests.

The pagoda is unique in architecture and design. Though men can go to the high upper part of the pagoda, it was not allowed during the rainy season. There is also an ancient pagoda, which looks like those in Bagan, within the compound. You can also feed pigeons there.

There are many, many temples, pagodas and stupas to see in Mayanmar. This one is different in its design. Very impressive.
