Koetaung Pagoda

Koetaung Pagoda is the other pagoda worth visiting and means ‘90,000 pagodas’ in Myanmar. It lies 400 yards to the north of the Pisei Hill. The exterior is literally filled with thousands of little pagoda images placed in line and the surrounding landscape is filled with greenery. The pagoda rises above the plains where it lies and is surrounded by paddy fields. The upper tiers of the pagoda are no longer there while the lowest tier which remains is about 30 feet high including its earth foundation. King Mintaikkha had the pagoda built in 1553.
