Photographer's Note

The interior of the pagoda is remarkable for the quantity of open space. Its focus is on the five small images of the Lord Buddha, covered in gold such that the original cannot be seen, located in the centre shrine. These images were brought to Burma by the widely travelled King Alaungsitthu, who reigned 1096 - 1167 CE, when returning from the Malay peninsula and were then deposited in a cave near the lake. They were rediscovered centuries later. The five images feature as a motif on the ceiling panels above the shrine.
