  Kyaikpun Pagoda

 

Myanmar

Kyai Pun Bhura Kyee, i.e. the ‘Pagoda of the Four Large Buddha images in Bago, which in English is usually referred to as the Kyai Pun or Kyaikpun Pagoda. The Buddha images are in the jaturathit style and said to represent Gautama (fig.), Kakusandha (fig.), Konagamana (fig.), and Kassapa (fig.).

 

Though none of the images are exactly the same, the features of only three are fairly identical, with the fourth one, facing the eastern direction (seen on the left side in this picture) being much more different in appearance.
