Why Mahazedi Pagoda is special ?

Maha Zedi is a Buddhist stupa built in 13th century. It remains one of the few temples in Bagan that contains a full set of glazed terracotta tiles depicting the Jataka. Maha Zedi Temple has a series of receding terraces, surmounted by a cylindrical or bell-shaped dome which continues into a finial of concentric rings. The base of the temple is a squared-shape base. The steps are very steep to climb up. But once you reach the terraces, you can view the beautiful scenes of Bagan with the ancient monuments.

Like most Pagodas in Myanmar, this too is a lovely Pagoda, full of history.Its good to take a Guide or Guide book if you want the correct history of this place as Language is a problem in Myanmar. Be apprpopriately dressed when visiting temples as a mark of respect to Buddhism.
