Why Mingala Zedi Temple is special ?

Mingala zedi is situated on the west of the road leading to Myin Kaba village. Its shape resembles that of Shwezigon. King Narathiha-pate built it in A.D. 1284 on the model of Shwezigon Pagoda. The only difference between it and Shwezigon is that it was built upon a brick platform.
The surrounding small stupas are decorated with glazed bricks of green and yellow colours. On the three terraces are found beautiful glazed plaques depicting in relief 550 Jataka stories, adorning the structure.
On the eastside of the brick platform are square plaques, figurines of devas paying homage to the Pagoda; On the southern side are found figures of ogres coming to offer de-votional gifts to the Pagoda; on the western side are found figures of Nagas with devotional gifts to offer to the Pagoda; and on the northern side square plaques depicting garudas coming to offer devotional gifts to the Pagoda.
In the spacious precinct there used to be many Kala Kyaung monasteries. Many have now fallen into ruin. Few that still stand are in good condition. At the north-east corner there is a small pagoda on Ceylonese model.

This paya has pretty bell-like dome. There're also terraces for 2 stories and you can walk around it. Pretty tiles are put at terrace but not completely restored.

Mingalazedi é un tempio di mattoni, a foggia di piramide, con gradinate al centro dei 4 lati.Ci sono salito per vedere il panorama della piana con la luce del mattino.Una facile salita, sia per altezza che per pendenza.Bello il panorama di tutta l’area che rivela un gran numero di edifici religiosi a perdita d’occhio.
