You can ring it. You can get underneath it and take photo. Ah! Isn't that exciting? Hit it with your fist and shout "I've rung the world's greatest ringing bell!" ["peik-thar": a Myanmar traditional unit of weight measurement, which equals to 3.6 pounds or 1.63 kilograms]

King Bodawpaya has a gigantic bell cast to go with his huge stupa. The Mingun Bell weighs 90 tons, or 55555 viss and is today the largest uncracked, ringing bell in the world.
