Shwe Dagon

Update : October 18, 2021

  • Many books and photos have been published about Shwe Dagon Pagoda.
  • During our younger days, we visited Shwe Dagon pagoda on Sundays.
  • We often see U Nyan Tun (father of Sayama Daw Khin Sandar Tun) volunteering for Kusala Kari Ah Thinn. The members of the association did the cleaning.
    Sponsors / donors provided brunch for the volunteers.
  • There were other Ah Thinns that take care of the cleaning.
    In fact, there were two Associations for Wednesdays :
    one for cleaning in the morning and one for cleaning in the evening.
  • The following is a post by Ma Pwint Than (EP71), High School Luyechun from Kayah State. One photo shows the members of the “Wednesday Evening Cleaning” Ah Thinn.
