Sagaing, the capital of Burma (present-day Myanmar) in the 1300s and 1500s, remained the country's center of Buddhist faith. Hundreds of pagodas, monasteries, and other retreats, including caves, are nestled in the surrounding hills and forests. In this temple there were fortynine representation of Gautama, the founder and primary figure of Buddhism.
