Kyanzittha, King


Kyanzittha, King
   (r. 1084-1112)
   Third king of the Pagan (Bagan) Dynasty and son of its founder, Anawrahta. Best known for building the Ananda Pahto (Ananda Temple), he promoted the commingling of Burmans and Mons, marrying his daughter to the great-grandson of Manuha, Mon king of Thaton, and proclaiming their child rather than his own son the legitimate successor (King Alaungsithu, r. 1112-1165). Under Kyanzittha, the spectacular monument building at Pagan (Bagan) really began.
