Maha Thin Daw Gree

Buddhist Site in Cox's Bazar

Hidden among the trees in Cox's Bazar's Aggameda Khyang monastery complex is Maha Thin Daw Gree, a shrine housing a number of Buddhist effigies – including one (called Cathat Ashun) which is dedicated to Captain Hiram Cox, the British East India Company representative who endeared himself to the indigenous Arakanese and after whom Cox’s Bazar is now named.
