Chauk Htat Gyi Reclining Buddha Image

Chauk Htat Gyi Reclining Buddha Image
The image then has a length of 59.28 m and a height of 30.4 m from the surface of the couch to the halo round the head with the height of the couch itself about 2 m above the platform.
Extensive reconstruction completed in 1973 extended the length of the image to 65.85 m with the height of the couch however, reduced to 1.22 m.
Originally the axis of the head turned towards the west and the visage faced the south, but the reconstructed image has the head aligned towards the east and the visage facing north.
