The main pagoda is roundish at the base and reaches the height of 200 feet. Destroyed during the World War II and now has been renovated based on the first structure, the pagoda is believed to be one of the most popular religious sites in Myanmar. The whole structure enclosed within an eight- side boundary and the main pagoda resembling the shape of a huge bell are what make the pagoda different from the other pagodas. Although there is no floral decoration can be found on this pagoda, the pagoda still attracts tourists by its entrance of the wall representing some of stone lions guarding the pagodas.

The pagoda is traditionally believed to have been built for the purpose of acquiring or securing treasures both mundane and heavenly.
