11.00 Kyauktawgyi stupa, the pagoda of the "Great Marble Image," is sited near the southern entry to Mandalay Hill. Although its construction was started in 1853 by King Mindon, it was not completed until 1878, in part due to a palace rebellion and domestic disturbances in the mid-1860s. Originally it was to be styled after the Ananda Pahto in Bagan; the completed Paya, however, bears no resemblance to that massive structure
