Originally built by King Mindon in 1857, at the same time as the Kuthodaw this Kyaung (Myanmar monastery) features the traditional Myanmar Burmese monastic construction a masonry base topped by a wooden building but instead of the usual multi roofed design it has graduated rectangular terraces. Atumashi was once home to a famous Buddha image clothed in Myanmar King’s silk clothing and with a huge diamond set on its forehead.
