Shwe Indein Pagoda
|Shwe Indein Pagoda
|Location||Indein, Shan State|
|Completed||c. 12th-13th century|
The pagodas were commissioned during the reign of King Narapatisithu. However, tradition holds that they were built by King Ashoka (known in Burmese as Dhammasoka ဓမ္မသောက), and renewed by King Anawrahta. However, there is no archaeological evidence to support this theory.
