ROOFING of a prayer hall has started at a 162-foot-long reclining jade Buddha image built on a hillock, east of Mohnyin, Kachin State.
The image was built in 2014 by monk U Kati who is staying at Kyaukthway Hill in Phakant Township.
The foundation and structure of the Buddha image are made of jade stones produced in Phakant Township. The eyes of the Buddhaare black jade, said the abbot.
A local resident remarked that the Reclining Buddha is more magnificent with its natural background of the local forest and mountains but that it must be protected from the elements.
