This well-proportioned zedi , built in 1980 to commemorate the unification of Theravada Buddhism in Myanmar, is connected by a pedestrian bridge to the southern gateway to Shwedagon Paya.

The zedi is hollow, its inside decorated with a forest of fake trees and a beautiful blue dome showing star constellations.

The king of Nepal contributed sacred relics for the zedi relic chamber and General Ne Win had it topped with an 11-level hti – two more levels than the hti at Shwedagon.
