Mingun

 

Shwekyunpin Festival

It is a traditional "Nat" festival from 30th July to 5th August, similar to other "Nat" festivals, where people from surrounding areas came for the festival.

Pahtodawgyi Festival

The uncompleted mammoth pagoda was built by King Bodawphaya( 1781-1819 A.D) in Mingune, Sagaing area. It was built on 5th waxing day of Tabodwe` of Myanmar Era, but it was left uncompleted due to a prophesy that once the pagoda is completed the country will break up. Had it been completed, it would be a height of some 500 feet and would have been a wonder. It was stopped at 162 ft (up to the first terrace) and its girth is about 450 ft.
