The Padamyar Pagoda is situated on the Sit Min Gyi in Myoma, not far from the centre of Mogok, and the city' s pristine nature can be seen from the top of the hills. There are relics of the great Shwedagon Pagoda on the bow itself, which were dedicated in the Maha Muni Pagoda of Mandalay for three long dawns and three night before they were brought to Mogok in a sacred ceremonial.
A Buddha sculpture in the Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda is said to have been preserved by King Alaungsithu, and a copy was made by U Hmu, the donator. In spite of resettlements and a fire during the Second World War, the sculptures were kept safe thanks to the caring of U Hla Aung Gyi and his boy Maung Sein Htun, who rescued them from the catastrophic fire.
