Payagyi Pagoda ( AD 6th-7th Century)


Payagyi pagoda was built in the early part of the Thayekhittaya Pyu period. Though it belongs to the same period of Baw Baw Gyi pagoda, its construction date is later than that of the latter. It is one of the earliest pagodas of Myanmar different from Baw Baw Gyi pagoda in style and feature, it is another prototype of late Myanmar pagodas.

Oral tradition and old chronicles claim it to be one of the 9 pagodas built by King Duttaboung, because it was built slowly, it came to be called Sai Sai pagoda ( Slow Slow pagoda). In course of time it came to be called “Payagyi Pagoda”.
