Lunnya Pagoda - Kayin State

It lies in Indu Circle, Pa-an Township, Kayin State. It was built by Arahant Marainda in 400 under the reign of King Thuwunna in Thaton (Thuwunna Bhumi). It is also called Tharaninga (Shwe Yaung Ya) Pagoda. The place has 55 pagodas. There is also a magic well believed to have some connections with the Lunnya Pagoda. The well is full no matter how much water is drawn from it; if women should go up to take a look, there would be unseasonal winds and the well would dry up eventually; only when some propitiation is made does the well rise again with water. The second point is that the well can grant wishes to bear child. And the third is its wish-granting for longevity for those bathing there.
