Andaw Pagoda

Andaw Pagoda lies about 10m from the Shittaung Pagoda. This was built by King Minhlaraza in 1521. Andaw Pagoda means ‘the pagoda enshrining the tooth-relic of the Buddha’. It is located about 86 ft. north east of the Shittaung Pagoda. Over the years, some parts of the pagoda were damaged, so the King of Mrauk U named Minrazagyi had it reconstructed in 1596. The tooth-relic of the Buddha is housed in the central tower of the shrine. It was originally brought from Sri Lanka by King Minbin (1534-1542 A.D.)
