Uppatasanti Pagoda

In Nay Pyi Taw there is, not surprisingly, a replica of the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon known as the Uppatasanti or "Peace" Pagoda. The main stupa is 12 inches shorter than the one in Yangon. There are also several white elephants on display in front of the temple complex. The truck shown in the foreground of the image above contains the forage for one of the numerous daily feedings that these animals require. This is quite a place.
