Not far from the airport, this immense seated Buddha was carved from a single piece of marble found outside Mandalay in 1999. The partially finished statue was painstakingly transported to Yangon by boat and train (on a specially built track) a year later, events that are depicted in the complex’s modern murals.

After the detailing was finished, the Buddha was positioned in its current home at the top of a hill and encased in glass.
