Photographer's Note

The Koe-Thaung, or Pagoda of 90000 Buddhas, is the largest one in Mrauk-U. The site is on flat marshy land, surrounded by paddy fields, and northeast of the place in the centre of the Mrauk-U. Tradition has it that the Koe-Thaung was struck by lighting because the king attempted to build a pagoda of 90,000 images to out do his father's Shite-Thaung Shrine of 80,000 images.
