A Buddhist pagoda in the center of Pyay

The Shwesandaw Pagoda, or Shwesandaw Paya (Burmeseရွှေဆံတော်ဘုရားpronounced [ʃwè sʰàɰ̃dɔ̀ pʰəjá]) is a Buddhist pagoda in the center of PyayBurma. It is one of the more important Buddhist pilgrimage locations in Burma. It is said to contain a couple of the Buddha‘s hairs, as its name means Golden Hair Relic.

During the full moon day of Tabodwe, Shwesandaw Pagoda holds a miphon pwe (မီးပုံပွဲ), whereby worshippers light bonfires using Sesbania cannabina as tinder.
