One of the Asia’s largest and most spectacular ancient monuments is a wonderful Pagoda named Kakku. It contains over 2,000 stupas with origins dating back many centuries. Its exists not only as an outstanding example of tradition art and architecture but also as a testament to the religious devotion of one of Myanmar’s many ethnic minorities , the Pa-Oh. For many centuries , the Pa-Oh has lived in peace , cultivating their land and devoting much of their energy and limited wealth to creating monasteries and pagodas.
The legend says that the first stupas were created by King Alaungsithu. the 12th century King of Bagan. The decorative sculptures and figures are 17th or 18th century but some of the structures are clearly much older.
Kakku Pagoda Festival is usually held in the March ( full moon day of Tabaung ).
