Alodaw Pauk Pagoda

Alodaw Pauk Pagoda, originally known as Inn Paya – one of the 84,000 pagodas donated and assembled by King Thiri Dhammar Soka, is a well-known and must-visit destination. It is located in Nan Pan Village, Inle, Nyaungshwe Township, Southern Shan States. At the time that King Anawrahta was in Inlay, Alodaw Pauk Pagoda was rottened and just the foot of the Pagoda was left and covered with bushes. Eight relics were enshrined and the new Pagoda was assembled.

In his visit around the Country, King Alaungsithu reached Inle and found this Alodaw Pauk Pagoda, included in the 84,000 donated Pagodas. The King then turned the vessel with ten various types of diamonds upside-down and made an oath. Also because the relics were in this bowl, the bowl with 10 types of gems, those gems were casted together to make a Buddha Image and sanctified with other 4 Gold Images, 7 Silver Images to construct the new Pagoda – the Gems Pagoda (or) Upside-down Bowl Pagoda.

Amid King Narapatisithu’s Period, 5 Red Gold Buddha Statues, 15 Silver Statues and 5 dishes of gems were enshrined and the Pagoda was renovated and called as ‘Alodaw Pauk Pagoda’.
