Some of the 729 stupas known as the world's largest book at the Kuthodaw Pagoda
Myanmar (Burma), Mandalay Hill, March 2012

The Kuthodaw Pagoda is a Buddhist temple complex, that contains the world's so-called largest book. It lies at the foot of Mandalay Hill and was built in 1860-1862 during the reign of King Mindon. The main stupa is shown in the picture at the right. In the grounds of the pagoda are 729 kyauksa gu or stone-inscription caves, each containing a marble slab inscribed on both sides with a page of text from the Tipitaka, the entire Pali Canon of Theravada Buddhism: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kuthodaw_Pagoda
