Myinkaba Pagoda

Type of monument : Type II Temple
Location : Near Myinkaba stream
Region : Myinkaba
Built by : King Anawrahta
Date : 11th Century
Monument Number : 1328

Situated in the village of Myinkaba, this 11th-century paya was built by Anawrahta to expiate the killing of his half-brother, the preceding king, Sokkade, in man-to-man combat.

It stands at the Myinkaba stream, into which Sokkade's body and saddle were allegedly disposed. His half-brohters Sokkade and Kyiso had wrested the Bagan throne from Anawrahta's father and he got it back by slaying Sokkade with his mythical spear well-known as "Araindama". Since it was built before Anawrahta's conquest of Thaton, it is also an interesting example of the religious architecture existing before the influence of the southern school of Buddhism had made itself felt.
