The pagoda houses five little plated pictures of Buddha, which have been canvassed in gold leaf to the point that their unique structures can't be seen. The gold-leaf application to such abundance is generally later. Old photos holding tight the cloister dividers demonstrate a portion of the pictures in a more unblemished shape.

Phaung Daw U Festival 

Phaung Daw U Pagoda Festival karaweik freight boat.
The pictures are of contrasting sizes, go from around nine to eighteen inches tall. Being basically strong gold, the pictures are to a great degree substantial. It is trusted that the Buddha pictures were conveyed to Inlay Lake by King Alaungsithu.

Yearly, amid the Burmese month of Thadingyut (from September to October), a 18-day pagoda celebration is held, amid which four of the Buddha pictures are put on a reproduction of an illustrious flatboat composed as a hintha winged animal and taken all through Inlay Lake. One picture dependably stays at the sanctuary. The intricately enhanced scow is towed by a few vessels of leg-rowers paddling as one, and other going with pontoons, making a noteworthy parade on the water. The freight boat is towed from town to town along the shores of the lake in clockwise design, and the four pictures live at the fundamental religious community in every town for the night.

The high purpose of the celebration is on the day when the pictures touch base at the principle town of Nyaung Shwe, where most explorers from the encompassing area come to offer their regards and worship. Before, the Saopha of Yawnghwe would by and by welcome the pictures. The pictures would be taken from the freight ship and a stupendous parade would take them to the royal residence or haw of the Saopha, entering the supplication corridor from the eastern passageway, and where it would dwell for a couple of hours. The general population was permitted inside the petition lobby of the haw to offer their regards. At that point the pictures would be taken to the fundamental sanctuary in Nyaung Shwe. Since the mid-1960s, the pictures have skirted the visit to the haw and taken straightforwardly to the sanctuary. It is presently for the most part invited to Nyaung Shwe by some high-positioning authority in the administration.

At some point in the 1960s amid an especially breezy day, when the waves were high on the lake, the freight ship conveying the pictures inverted, and the pictures tumbled into the lake. It was said that they couldn't recoup one picture, however that when they backpedaled to the religious community, the missing picture was marvelously sitting in its place.
