  Kakku

 

Myanmar

Kakku, fully known as Mwe Taw Kakku, consists of an 12th century AD historical Pa-oh site, with a collection of around 2,000 ancient stupas, tucked away in the scenic highlands around Taunggyi, i.e. Shan State’s thriving capital.

 

Whereas the main stupa stands about 40 meters tall, most of the stupas in this remote location are around 20 metres high and many are richly decorated with religious and mythological figures.
