Located at Myinkaba village, Manuha Temple is a rectangular base construction with two white-washed storeys built by the Mon King Manuha himself in 1059. Earlier in 1057, from Thaton, he was defeated and captured by King Anawrahta of Pagan Kingdom in 1057.
Within the temple, there are four gigantic Buddha images: two sitting and one reclining. Each of them is placed in a small chamber, showing physical discomfort and further illustrating the mental distress of King Manuha. Sign of sadness can easily be seen on the faces of the two sitting Buddha statues. However, the reclining one is serene and happy, facing north. This implies he is about to enter Nirvana and hence be free from living miserably, expressing Manuha’s will that he was “never conquered by another”.
