Mingun Bell

King Bodawpaya did not plan to build the largest pagoda in the world only. He also wanted to cast a biggest ringing bell to install at the top of the giant Pahtodawgyi stupa. The bell that was made within 2 years from 1808 until 1810, measuring almost 5 meters high and 55555 viss, a Burmese measurement equivalent to 90,718 kg (90 tonnes / 199,999 pounds).

The same earthquake knocked the bell down, however, no cracks were found and it is still in great condition up to now. Today, the bell is housed nearby the Mingun Pahtodawgyi Pagoda in a Zayat, an intricate Burmese styled pavilion with a multi tiered roof.
