In a land of seemingly endless pagodas, the Hsinbyume Pagoda is the queen bee who is not afraid to stand out from the crowd. The unique style of the pagoda can be traced back to its origin story. This pagoda was built as a memorial to King Bagyidaw’s first wife, Queen Hsinbyume, who died after giving birth to the King’s first child. The queen’s name can be literally translated as White Elephant Queen, explaining the unique paint job on the pagoda. What’s more is that the pagoda was constructed to model Mount Meru – the center of the universe according to Buddhist cosmology. The pagoda itself is modeled after the Chulamanee pagoda that is said to sit on top of Mount Meru, whilst the circular terraces that make up the base of the pagoda are said to represent the seven mountain ranges that surround Mount Meru.
