Article (015) : First pagoda in the USA

Dat Paung Zon Aung Min Gaung Saya U Thilawunta (also fondly known as “Mon Sayadaw”) built the first pagoda in the USA on the Alleghany Mountains.

The American devotee, who permitted the pagoda to be constructed on his land, passed away.

Grapevine says that there were plans to contact the current owners to ask permission to renovate the pagoda or to relocate the pagoda.

Later pagodas include the ones at Kaba Aye Taung Pulu monastery in Boulder Creek, California.
