Theinguttra Hill

Theinguttra Hill at that time was a thick jungle area and no one knows the location of the sacred hill. The legend has it that on this sacred hill there located three sacred things from the past Buddhas’: the water filter of Kakusandha, the robe of Konagamana, and the staff of Kassapa, all these known as Paribawga relics. The king of the thirty-three knowing that, the human on their own could not find the location, he sent his assistant, Withagyone Deva to clear the hill and make the place ready to accept the stupa. The Deva, within a nighttime, used their miraculous power, had cleared the jungle and level the place ready to accept the stupa. In that very night, in the most miraculous way, the two brothers received the Deva’s message and saw the Theinguttara Hills in their dreams. In the morning, they informed Okkalapa King the location of the sacred hill.
