Located between Bagan and Myinkaba Village, Myazedi, meaning Jade Pagoda, is a structure consists of a gold gilded stupa on top of a whitewashed building with pillars at four sides. It was constructed by Prince Yazakumar in the 12th century, before when Mon’s Buddhism laid its impact on Bagan, proven through the elongated bell and low, round terraces.
From Myazedi, two identical pillars were found. One of them was brought to Bagan Archaeological Museum, and the other is kept inside the Pagoda. The inscription is written in four languages (Old Burmese, Pali, Mon and Pyu), telling the feelings of Prince Yazakumar towards his father, King Kyansittha, as well as the choice to the throne.
The Myazedi inscription holds important historical and linguistic meaning as it is related to Pagan’s Kings and proves Pyu’s cultural significance towards the ancient Pagan Kingdom.
