Lawkananda Pagoda pronounced: [lɔ́ka̰nàɴda̰ pʰəjá]; also spelt Lokananda, literally "joy of the world" is a Buddhist zedi located in Bagan, Burma (formerly Pagan). It was erected on the bank of the Ayeyarwaddy River, and built during the reign of King Anawrahta. It contains a replica of a Buddha tooth relic. On 24 May 2003, a bejewelled umbrella (hti) was hoisted to the top of the pagoda.
