Shin Byu Nat

Maung Min Shin (Burmese: မောင်မင်းရှင် [màʊɴ mɪ́ɴ ʃɪ̀ɴ]), also called Shin Byu (ရှင်ဖြူ [ʃɪ̀ɴ bjù]), is one of the 37 nats in the official Burmese pantheon of nats. He is a representation of historical Min Shin, brother of Taungmagyi (Shin Nyo), both of whom served under King Duttabaung of Prome. According to belief, the king became fearful of the brothers' strength and forced them to fight each other to death.[1]
