Myanmar

Ngakywenadaung in Bagan is a 10th Century pagoda built by King Nyaung-u Sawrahan, who is also known as the so-called ‘Cucumber King’ or ‘Farmer King’ Taungthugyi Min, and of which the name means the ‘Earring of Ngakywe’. Its shape is similar to the Gourd Pagoda Buphaya (fig.).

 

This cylindrical monument is 13 meter high and is one of just four edifices in Bagan that was fully covered with green-glazed tiles, some of which are still visible today.
