Pawdawmu Pagoda

Type of monument : Type II Temple
Location : Near Soemingyi Temple
Region : Myinkaba
Built by : Unknown
Date : 11th Century
Monument Number : 1193

Pawdawmu Pagoda is a small pagoda of unique form and architecture. It is about 16 feet in height and located just across the Somingyi kyaung.


It was built during the 11th century. It is a well-preserved building, because it was encased in a covering of brick. It rests on three triple terraces, which are in the form of a hexagon. Between the rims, of the bell-shaped dome and the highest or third terrace is generally found a circular or octagonal protuberance. In this monument, the second protuberance is in the form of a hexagon. Over the hemispherical dome in the place of the usual concentric rings, there is an obelisk supporting a small conical finial resting on a capital of lotus petals.
