Inndawgyi Shwe Myinzu Pagoda - Kachin State

It lies on the sandbank named Linlon about 1,500 feet from the west bank of Indawgyi in Mohnyin Township, Kachin State. In the 1 lth century, Sayadaw U Nyi Hsu of Taung Thonlone in Indawgyi set out from Hpa Nan Mon areas with dis¬ciples endowed with sila, samadhi, metta and Kammathana, conveying the three stones. When they got to the venue of the pagoda he set up his staff on the sandbank and strengthened its position with the three stones. As instructed by U Nyi Hsu, Sayadaw U Thawbita laid the foundation of the pagoda on 1230 new year day. Then, five relics were obtained from the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon on 13th waxing moon day of Kason (22-4-1869) and conveyed on the boat in a gold casket to be enshrined there on the platform. The pagoda was completed on the 6th waxing moon day of Kason. The height was over 15 feet. Further renovations brought the height to 50 feet with a base about 39 feet 10 inches. The pagoda was built with different terraces each adorned with stone statues. There are also 152 satellite pagodas. It lies resplendent in Mohnyin Township, Kachin State.
