Bawbawgyi Temple

Pyay, Myanmar (Burma)

Buddhist Temple
Monument

The Bawbawgyi Paya is the best preserved ruin of the old Pyu kingdom of Sri Ksetra. Of uncertain age, it was likely built between the 6th and the 7th centuries when the Pyu people commanded the circular city immediately to the north. Despite its antiquity, the pagoda is in excellent structural condition, having miraculously survived a number of major earthquakes over the preceding centuries.
