In order to keep the glance of Shwedagon, the Union Ministry for Religious Affairs and Culture announced in December 2016 they will start the refurbishment in early 2017.

We received new updates from the Pagoda Trustees Committee that there are planning to follow this program:

  • In 2017: renovation of the ground of Shwedagon (the renovation has already started
  • In 2018 and 2019: renovation of the discrepancy and improvement of the quality of lower plates

To repair this discrepancy and improve the quality of lower plates, the government requested experts to assess the quality of all plates (meaning the entire stupa) and repair those considered of bad quality. Therefore, from 2018, the main stupa will be surrounded by scaffolding.

We will keep you informed if we receive any update.
If you have questions, please ask Ko Thein Zaw from Myanmar Production team.
