  Shwegugyi Zedi Taw

 

Myanmar

 

 

Shwegugyi Zedi Taw is the name of a Buddhist temple in Bago. Its name is similar to Shwegugyi Phaya, i.e. an ancient gu-style temple in Bagan (fig.). Shwegugyi Zedi Taw consists of a hill with the remnants of an older temple, topped with stupa and zedi, while newer structures, including rows of standing Buddha images and a row of concrete monks on alms begging round, surround the central mound.
