Myoe Daung Kyaung or Myo Daung Monastery means the Monastery at the corner of the city. It was the main monastery building in Bagan. with an east-west orientation. is approximately 130 ft. x 115 ft. Most of its significant elements are from the pre-colonial Kon-baung period. some of the rooms apparently are later. Its glory and what should be a major claim to prominence lies in its numerous woodcarvings which are also mostly from the late Kon-baung period of the mid- to late 19th century.
The Myoe Daung complex actually contains two monasteries. numerous pyathats. pavilions. rest houses and ancillary buildings.
