Built by King Anawratha in 1057 CE, Shwe Sandaw pagoda is famous for stone, brick and bronze Buddha images, crafted during Anawratha’s time. There are several image houses at Shwe Sandaw pagoda. A reclining Buddha image of 70 feet long is housed inside an image house on the west of the pagoda. The original frescoes inside the walls of the image house are fairly preserved. The bronze images, 50 bronze statues of Buddha, were found at the pagoda during renovation in 1957. They are now on exhibited at the Bagan Archeological Museum. Nine more bronze Buddha statues were discovered after the 1975 Earthquake and they were also moved to the museum.
