Day 1 Mandalay - Part IV: Hsinbyume Pagoda view looking towards the incomplete Mingun Pahtodawgyi
The Mingun Pahtodawgyi is an incomplete stupa in Mingun. The ruins are the remains of a massive construction project begun by King Bodawpaya in 1790 which was intentionally left unfinished.
The construction used thousands of prisoners of war from his expansionist campaigns and slaves. It was also a heavy toll over the people and the state thus a prophecy was allegedly created to halt the project - 'the building of the pagoda will bring the country to its end'
