Alodaw Pauk Pagoda.

This Pagoda is situated at Nan Pan Village, Inle, Nyaungshwe Township, Southern Shan States.
It is one of the 84,000 pagodas donated and built by King Thiri Dhammar Soka. It was known as Inn Paya at that time. When King Anawrahta was in Inlay, Alodaw Pauk Pagoda was decayed and only the foot of the Pagoda was left and covered with bushes. Eight relics were enshrined and the new Pagoda was built.
When King Alaungsithu toured the Country and arrived at Inle, this Alodaw Pauk Pagoda, included in the 84,000 donated Pagodas, was found. Therefore, he turned the bowl with ten different kinds of gems upside-down and made an oath. And because the relics were present in this bowl, the bowl with 10 different kinds of gems, the gem-stone from the cloud, the gem-stone from the ivory tusks, a pearl worth one lakh and gems were casted together to make a Buddha Image and enshrined with other 4 Gold Images, 7 Silver Images to built the new Pagoda. This Pagoda was known as Gems Pagoda (or) Upside-down Bowl Pagoda.
During King Narapatisithu’s Period, 5 Red Gold Buddha Images, 15 Silver Images and 5 bowls of gems were enshrined and the Pagoda was renovated and called as ‘Alodaw Pauk Pagoda’. Some historians also said that King Narapatisithu named  it as ‘Alodaw Pauk Pagoda’. During King Saw Mun Nit of Pagan Dynasty, it was named again as ‘Alodaw Pauk Pagoda’, after gilding the Pagoda from the Umbrella to the foot of it. As Alodaw Pauk Pagoda was renovated and preserved by the ancient Kings successively, the Pagoda lies in an adorable situation up to this present day.
