The death of the sovereign in 1819 and the earthquake of 1838 stopped this grand project. It is now forbidden to climb to the top of the pagoda because the accesses are not at all secure. Moreover, this practice degrades the monument. Another stop is planned at the Mingun Bell (90 tons, 4 m high and 5 m diameter), the second-biggest bell in the world after that of Moscow.
