Kakku pagodas is the compound of around 2,000 antiquated pagodas dating to hundreds of years back at the Pa-O tribe territory of Inle Lake area. The figures and sculptures there were thought to be from seventeenth and eighteenth centuries; however, the true history of the pagoda compound still remains unknown. History specialists and researchers estimated that it was fabricated around 400 years back however there is no proof to confirm that estimation is found until so far.
Despite the fact that the Kakku pagodas situated around 33 miles south of Taunggyi, the center of Shan State, the misty pagoda compound and its pagodas were not well known even among Buddhists in Myanmar. The principle stupa is of 40 meters high and Pa-O tribes agreed to be enshrined with Buddha’s relics.
The well restored Kakku pagodas festival is celebrated each full moon day of Tabaung in March, and it is one of the most significant celebrations for Pa-O tribes.
