This was the first monument in Bagan to feature stairways leading from the square bottom terraces to the round base of the stupa itself. This stupa supposedly enshrines a Buddha hair relic brought back from Thaton.

The hti, which was toppled by the earthquake, can still be seen lying on the far side of the compound. A new one was fitted soon after tie quake.

The upper terrace of Shwesandaw Paya has become a popular sunset-viewing spot.

Close to Shwesandaw Paya stands Lawkahteikpan Pahto - a small but interesting Middle period gu (cave) containing excellent frescoes and inscriptions in both Burmese and Mon.
