Ruins of Mingun

The Mingun temple is a monumental uncompleted stupa began by King Bodawpaya in 1790. The completed stupa would have been the largest in the world at 150 meters. Huge cracks are visible on the structure from the earthquake of 23 March 1839, Like many large pagodas in Myanmar, a Pondaw paya or working model of the stupa can be seen nearby. [Source: Wikipedia]
