Do you know the history of Famous Mahamuni Buddha image? 


it's a little bit controversy! 

These are some facts from Wiki.... 


Mahamuni Buddha image originally came from Arakan. It is highly venerated in Myanmar and central to many people's lives, as it is seen as an expression of representing the Buddha's life.



According to the legend, the Buddha visited the Dhanyawadi city of Arakan in 554 BC.King Sanda Thuriya requested an image of Buddha. 


After casting the Great Image, the Buddha breathed upon it, and thereafter the image became the exact likeness. 





Today,the Mahamuni Buddha image is placed in the The Mahamuni Buddha Temple (also called the Mahamuni Pagoda) which is located southwest of Mandalay, Myanmar.

I want to go there again. My guide explain me about the likenesses. What he said is that ancient tradition refers to only five likenesses of the Buddha, made during his lifetime; two were in India, two in paradise, and the fifth is the Mahamuni Buddha image in Myanmar. Is that right?
