MAHAZEDI PAGODA (15 MINS DRIVE)

There are many other famous pagodas in Bago like the Mahazedi (the Great Stupa) built by King Bayinnaung in 1560 A.D and Hinthakone Pagoda which you should see.
It is known that the pagoda enshrines a tooth-relic brought from Sri Lanka. Tradition has it that Hinthakone is the hill where the two sacred mythical ducks called Hintha (Hamsa) alighted when only the very top of the hill was above the ocean.
The name Hantha-wadi or Hamsavati by which Bago and her kingdom were known originated from this name.
