Casting of King Athinkhaya Saw Yun bronze statue complete

Metal workers finished casting a statue of King Athinkhaya Saw Yun, founder of Sagaing, on 30 June, an official of the Pyae Wa bronze foundry in Tampawady Ward, Mandalay. Technicians took more than nine months to cast the 13-foot-high bronze statue in three parts.
Under the auspices of venerable Sitagu Sayadaw, retired construction minister U Khin Maung Myint spent K35 million on the statue. It will be moved to the Ohbo roundabout in Sagaing in the first week of July.
