Indian kings in the Burmese chronicle II...
and robots guarding relics in a pagoda?

Here is the next installment of my rough translation of U Kala's Mahayazawingyi.

This section is a legendary history of Indian kings, including I believe Asoka also known as Maha-thiri-thama-thoka.

Also read about robots or automata guard the relics in a pagoda, which truly seems strange.
