Octagonal Pavilion

Octagonal Pavilion, XishuangbannaOctagonal Pavilion, 16 km from the Menghai County, was first built in 1701 as a place of Buddhist worship. It is said that it is shaped like the golden crown worn by Sakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism, before he became a monk. 21 m high and 10 m in diameter at the bottom, the pavilion is one of the best examples of Dai architecture.

Menghai is one of three counties of Xishuangbanna. Its main attractions are the Hinayana Buddhist style buildings: Jingzhen Octagonal Pavilion, the Mother and Son Pagoda in Menglai, the Bamboo Shoot Tower of Menglun, the "King of tea trees" in the Nannuo Hills, and Bada.

From Menghai, visitors can also pay a visit to Myanmar via Daluo.
