Mingalazedi Pagoda

Mingalazedi-Bagan-Myanmar-02-gjeMingalazedi Pagoda is a Buddhist stupa located in Bagan, Burma.

It was built in 1284 during the reign of King Narathihapate.

The pagoda is one of few temples in Bagan with a full set of glazed terra cotta tiles depicting the Jataka.

The pagoda was built in brick and contains several terraces leading to large pot-shaped stupa at its centre, topped by a bejewelled umbrella (hti). Mingalazedi Pagoda was built a few years before the First Burmese Empire (Pagan Kingdom) was pillaged by the Mongols.
