It is one of the major interesting sites located on the bank of Ayeyarwady river. The small pagoda in the shape of a gourd is resting on a base rock that looks like a gourd and that it was named Bupaya meaning ‘ Gourd Pagoda ‘. The original pagoda was broken down to sink in the river by a severe earthquake. So it was reconstructed in the shape and size of the original. Bupaya is one of the best places to enjoy the sunset view with a fine scenery against the natural background.
