ABOUT THE CHAUK HTAT GYI PAGODA

Chauk Htat Gyi means “great six layers” in Burmese, referring to the six corrugated iron sheets that make up the roof of the shed this remarkable image lies under. This impressive image of Buddha dons a golden robe and lies on his right with the back of his head supported. Sacred relics and precious gems can be found inside the Buddha head and in the cushion under his arm. The soles of his feet contain 108 segments in red and gold colours that show images representing the 108 lakshanas or auspicious characteristics of the Buddha.
