This project was not being allowed since 2014 when the authorities concerned submitted to the department of ancient culture, but at the moment, they allowed to construct the project as the earthquake has been shaken recently, and it is also an essential for the visitors and tourists.
According to policy, the authorities concerned get the allowance to construct view points at South east of Sularmuni pagoda and Ko Mauk Kan’s bank near West Phwar Saw village. The bank will be heighted to use as view point for the visitors.

The authorities of JICA have to submit the detail facts of project how they will maintain that viewpoint after finishing the construction,” said U Aung Kyaw, the director of ancient culture department (Bagan branch).
In this function, the view point will be built on the place of natural pool and therefore, it can be attracting not only local visitors but also foreigners and on the other hand, the ancient culture can be remained.
In addition, the authorities concerned of this project will also conduct the neat and tidy by including car parking, shops and paths not losing the environment. This project will cost more than the normal amount.
