According to the legend, a local hero in the old days had rescued a beautiful princess from the hand of a spider, and hence the name "Pindaya", which was evolved from the Burmese word "Pinguya" meaning "having captured the spider."
Tourists visit Pindaya to see Pindaya Caves at Shwe U Min Pagoda. The three caves are connected together high on the cliff of a hill overlooking the lake. The longest cave stretches about 490 feet and filled with numerous Buddha images of all sizes and shapes carved from wood, stone, marble and bronze. There are believed to be over 8,000 images in the caves.
Every year in the Burmese month of Tabaung (February to March), the Pindaya Caves come alive with festivals where tens of thousands of pilgrims visit the Pagoda.
