Kalyarni Sima

The essential building for Buddhist Order is no doubt that of Sima or Ordination Hall. It is one of the Simas built by King Dhammazeddi in 15 century. The remarkable fact is that it was erected in the form of Kalyarni Sima at Sri-Lanka and 10 lithic inscriptions of its’ vicinity recount a detailed intercourse of Myanmar and Sri-Lanka in religious affairs. More than that, Kyaik-pun or Four-Buddhas on the way, traditional wovening of Mon ladies at Kyay-ni-kan, Kanbawzathadi Palace, Market and Kyakhatwaing monastery for monastic life should be put in account of the itinerary.
