Mingalazedi Pagoda

Mingalazedi was built by Narathihapati, also known as Tarokepyaymin, 'the king who ran away from the Chinese', and was completed in 1284, just three years before Kublai Khan's invasion. As such it was the last major pagoda built in Bagan. It is noted for the glazed terracotta tiles around its terraced bases. These are apparently much prized by art thieves, which is why the pagoda is enmeshed in chicken wire.
