  U Min Thonze

 

Myanmar

The U Min Thonze Pagoda in Sagaing consists of a crescent-shaped edifice with 30 tunnel-shaped entrance gates, and that houses a row of 45 Buddha images seated in the maravijaya pose.

 

Each of the Buddha images represents one year that the Buddha lived on earth, i.e. 45 years counting from his Enlightenment until his death or Parinirvana.
