  • Manuha (birman မနူဟာ ; môn မကုဋ) fut le dernier souverain du royaume de Thaton. Monté sur le trône dans les années 1030, il régna jusqu'en 1057, où il fut vaincu par Anawrahta, du royaume de Pagan. Selon la tradition mône, Manuha était le 59e roi de Thaton depuis la fondation de la ville à l'époque du Bouddha, au VIe siècle avant notre èreL'historiographie mône et birmane traditionnelle affirme qu'Anawrahta, récemment converti au bouddhisme theravada, fit demander à Manuha un exemplaire du Tipitaka, le canon bouddhique en pâli. Manuha aurait rejeté sa demande en déclarant que les birmans incultes du nord en étaient indignes. Anawrahta prit occasion de ce refus pour envahir le royaume de Thaton. Malgré ce récit, il est plus probable qu'Anawrahta conquit Thaton pour s'opposer à l'avance de l'empire khmer vers la côte du Tenasserim.Manuha et sa famille furent déportés à Pagan avec 30 000 moines et artisans. Entre 1050 et 1085, ces ouvriers et artisans môns participèrent à la construction d'à peu près 2000 monuments à Pagan, dont la splendeur rivalise encore aujourd'hui avec celle d'Angkor.À Pagan, Manuha obtint l'autorisation de construire le temple qui porte son nom. Achevé en 1059, il abrite quatre énormes statues du bouddha, presque trop grandes pour lui. Leur situation étriquée est censée figurer la situation inconfortable du « roi captif ».Selon Louis Frédéric, le Temple de Nanpaya a également été construit par Manuha.
  • Manuha (Burmese: မနူဟာ; Mon: မကုဋ) was the last king of Thaton Kingdom. Manuha ruled Thaton from 1030s until 1057 when he was defeated by King Anawrahta of Pagan Kingdom. According to the Mon tradition, Manuha was the 59th in the line of kings who supposedly founded Thaton during the time of the Buddha in the 6th century BCE.Traditional Burmese and Mon reconstructions also hold that Anawrahta, a recent convert to Theravada Buddhism, asked for the Theravada Buddhist canon from Manuha. The Mon king reputedly rejected Anawrahta's request, saying that the uncultured Burmans of the north were not worthy of the religion. This refusal was used by Anawrahta as pretense to invade and conquer the Mon kingdom. Despite this account, it is more likely Anawrahta conquered Thaton in order to check the westward advance of Khmer Empire in the Tenasserim coast. Still according to traditional belief, Manuha and his family along with some 30,000 monks and artisans, were brought back to Pagan (Bagan). Between 1050 and about 1085, Mon craftsmen and artisans helped to build some two thousand monuments at Pagan, the remains of which today rival the splendors of Angkor Wat.However, recent research—still a minority view—argues that Mon influence on the interior after Anawrahta's conquest is a greatly exaggerated post-Pagan legend, and that Lower Burma in fact lacked a substantial independent polity prior to Pagan's expansion. Historian Michael Aung-Thwin (Aung-Thwin 2005) argues that the existence of Thaton is not supported by contemporary evidence.Manuha asked and was allowed to build the Manuha Temple in Pagan in 1059. Inside the temple three giant sitting Buddha statues seem too large for their enclosures, and their cramped, uncomfortable positions are said to represent the stress and lack of comfort the 'captive king' had to endure.
