Kaba Aye Paya and Maha Pasana Cave

The high and colorfully decorated 35-meter Kaba Aye Pagoda means or “peace of world”. Red, yellow and turquoise lotuses, swastika and lotus buds are carved on the stucco exterior, topped by the golden stupa. Golden arches on the porches around the outside of the pagoda are attached withen golden figurines. There are also precious statues and relics housed within the pagoda.

Meanwhile, the Maha Pasana (Great Stone) Cave is seen north of the Kaba Aye Pagoda and included in the same complex. The cave was built as a replica of the Satta Panni Cave of India, where the first Buddhist Synod was convened. Yangon hosted the Sixth Buddhist Synod over two year from 1954 to 1956, in celebration of the 2500th anniversary of the Buddha’s enlightenment. Some 2,500 monks attended the 1954 event, reciting scriptures inside the massive artificial cave.

Nowadays, the Maha Pasana Cave is still used to organize the Buddhist ceremonies as well as a place of pilgrimage.

Kaba Aye Paya and Maha Pasana Cave are not too far from the Gem Museum in Yangon, just north of Inya Lake Hotel.
