  Port Map

Mingun is a town located in Sagaing Region, north-west Burma (Myanmar), 11 kilometers up Ayeyarwady River, on river's west bank from Mandalay. The main attraction of Mingun is the ruined Mingun Pahtodawgyi.

Mingun temple is an uncompleted stupa began in 1790 by King Bodawpaya. It was not completed, as an astrologer claiming that after the temple is finished, the king would die. If completed, the stupa would have been the world's largest at 150 m (490 ft). The earthquake of March 23, 1839 led to huge cracks on the structure. Like many Myanmar's large pagodas, pondaw paya (working model) of the stupa is situated nearby.

King Bodawpaya had a gigantic bell cast to go with the huge stupa. Mingun Bell weighs 90 tons, and is currently the world's largest ringing bell. In Burmese measurement, the weight of the bell is 55,555 viss/peiktha (1 viss equals 1.63 kg), handed down as mnemonic "Min Hpyu Hman Hman Pyaw", with consonants that represent the number 5 in Burmese numerology and astronomy.

Two hundred yards from the famous stupa and bell lies the pretty white Hsinbyume (Myatheindan Pagoda) with its distinctive architectural style that was modelled after mythical Mount Meru (Myinmo taung), created in 1816 by Bodawpaya's successor and grandson Bagyidaw and dedicated to his first consort Princess Hsinbyume (granddaughter of Bodawpaya, Lady of the White Elephant, 1789–1812) who died in childbirth.
