Myoe Daung Monastery

      Myoe Daung Kyaung or Myo Daung Monastery means the Monastery at the corner of the city. It is now located within old Bagan, right up north. It was the main monastery building, with an east-west orientation, is approximately 130 ft. x 115 ft. (40 m. x 35 m.). Most of its significant elements are from the pre-colonial Kon-baung period; some of the rooms apparently are later. Its glory and what should be a major claim to prominence lies in its numerous woodcarvings which are also mostly from the late Kon-baung period of the mid- to late 19th century.

      This is a great teak structure and one of the most famous in the area since it shows an impressive architecture from the late Kon-baung period. It's amazing that it is still standing because there are frequent fires which eliminate everything made from wood. There are a few dozen monks and novices still living there and the place also functions as a school for the younger once staying there. Since there is a constant coming and going the people count is variable.
