It is a Buddhist monastery, which was built in 1857 by King Mindon and is located in Mandalay, Myanmar. The original monastery was built by using teak material and was layered with stucco on the outside. In 1890, the structure was burned down during the fire in the city, because of which, the monastery, 30 feet tall Buddha image and the set of Tipitika were destroyed. Moreover, a 19.2 carat of diamond also went missing which was given by Maha Nawrahta to King Bodawphaya. In 1996, monastery was reconstructed with the help of prison labor by Burma’s Archaelogical Department.
