Tawagu Pagoda (Burmese: တဝဂူစေတီ) is a Buddhist pagoda in Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma), located at the intersection of 82nd and 20th Streets in Aungmyethazan Township's Palengweyaung ward.[1] The pagoda holds a pagoda festival in the Burmese month of Nadaw.

Establishment[edit]

The pagoda was erected by King Shwenankyawshin (1501–1527) during the Innwa era, at the site of a white elephant's abode. The pagoda was subsequently restored by Thibaw Min.
