LocationSagaing, Myanmar

The Kaunghmudaw Pagoda is a large pagoda on the northwestern outskirts of Sagaing in central Myanmar. Modeled after the Ruwanwelisaya pagoda of Sri Lanka, the Kaunghmudaw is known for its egg-shaped design, which stands out among more traditional-style, pyramid-shaped Burmese pagodas. The stupa's formal name Yaza Mani Sula signifies the enshrinement of Buddhist relics inside its relic chamber. But it is commonly known by its popular name, Kaunghmudaw. It is an important pilgrimage and tourist destination in the Sagaing area.
