Frequently dubbed the world’s biggest book for its surrounding 729 marble slabs, the kuthodaw paya sees a lot of worship and tourists. The entire 15 books of the Tripitaka are inscribed on the slabs, each of which is housed in its won small stupa. Building of the paya commenced in 1857, the same time work began on the Myanmar royal place. Kuthodaw was modeled on the Shwezigon Paya at Nyaung U, Bagan in Myanmar.
