Excavation work at an archaeological site near Phayarma Pagoda at Sri Ksetra has uncovered a building unlike any other found at the ancient Pyu city, government officials say. Excavation on the site began in early September and has been led by the Department of Archaeology, National Museum and Library under the Ministry of Culture. The remains of a brick structure 14 metres long, 11m wide and 1.3m high were discovered near Phayarma pagoda at Sri Ksetra, located near Pyay in western Bago Region. The structure was found to hold 25 pots containing burial urns. It also had a well, 75 centimetres in diametre, and the baked floor of the structure is thought to have been regularly exposed to fire when the building was in use. However, little else is known about it at present.
