The colonialists who had occupied lower Myanmar took this Buddha Image to England with the intention of using the bronze in their mint. According to legend they could neither melt is nor break it with hammers, and the Queen was said to have suffered nagging headache and nightmares.She ordered that the statue be returned to the place from where it was taken. After sending back it to Myanmar , she recovered from the suffering. In memory of its having been taken abroad and having been brought back, it became famous as the Man AungMyinPyitawpyan BuddhaImage(the statue that was returned from abroad).
