The Idol

The temple houses the largest pure white marble statue of the Buddha outside of Myanmar. U Kyaw Gaung, an immigrant from Mandalay, Myanmar, dreamed of a mammoth marble Buddha statue as seen in Myanmar. Thereafter he started to raise funds and managed to source an immense marble from Sagyin Hill. Sagyin Hill was already famous for its superior quality marble.

 

Photo taken at the main hall, ground level.

Do they light the wick now Ayush?
Beautiful, Ayush!
A real feeling of richness with all the gold. Flowers and fruit that have been left are so nice too.
Nice one Ayush!
That is a magnificent statue Ayush. I'm really enjoying this set of pictures you are bringing to us.

The flowers in blue/purple/yellows/green add just the right 'touch'. Wonderful capture.
