    The Great Bell of Dhammazedi

    Sunday, 1 July, 2012

    It remains ever unsolved lying at the bottomof a muddy confluence for four centuries hidingfrom explorers trying to spot its exact locationfor salvage. Many previous attempts to bringback the Dhammazedi Bell to its original placewere unsuccessful because of the reasonsincluding the existence of a number ofshipwrecks in the area, poor visibility and 400years of changing water currents and coursescoupled with other natural forces such as lowand high tides and silting.

    Truly, the task of searching and salvagingthe 270-ton ancient Bell is easier said thandone as it is a gigantic mission involving a lotof hidden difficulties, problems and complexmatters indicating firm commitment plusintellectual, technological, financial and humanresources for achieving success.

    Anyhow, it is a national task asDhammazedi Bell is our invaluable culturalheritage and the largest of its kind ever cast inthe world. Moreover, the Bell has many thingsto offer as its engraved writings will provideuseful historical facts and we can study ourancient art of metal casting as the copper Bellincluded an alloy of gold, silver and tin.

    In Yangon today, we held a workshop inwhich experts at home and abroad werepresenting suggestions, means and action plansfor the successful salvaging of the Great Bellof Dhammazedi.

    In addition to many suggestions andoptions, Union Minister for Information andfor Culture U Kyaw Hsan in his opening addressalso stressed the jobs value, saying, It is anational task so much important for all of usthat we must accomplish the missionsuccessfully.
