Buddha Tooth Relic Pagoda
The Buddha Tooth Relic Pagoda is situated on the Maha
Dhamma Yan Thi Hill, to the east of the Yangon-Mandalay Highway, Shar-taw
Lay Village, Amarapura Township. The Maha Dhamma Yan Thi Hill was chosen
for the site of building the pagoda, and the Parikamma Ground Cleansing
Ceremony was celebrated on 6-7-95. On the land which covers 364.23
hectares is built the main shrine of 49.38m in diameter and 49.38m in
its Height. It took one year, five months and eight days to complete the
construction of the pagoda from the day of the Ground Cleansing Ceremony
to the day of Offering the Golden Ornamental Finial to the pagoda. The
pagoda's passages face nine directions. Its model is of the late 20th
century architectural design, a harmonious combination of the two models
of the Ananda Temple of the Bagan Period and the Shwedagon of Yangon. It
evokes awe and reverence in the beholder. In the nine gateways are
enshrined nine Buddha images in the posture of nine Mudras, and are
entitled the sacred Nine Attributes of Lord Buddha.
