Paya

   (Hpaya)
   The word in the Burmese (Myanmar) language that is commonly employed to refer to pagodas, but it may be used in connection with other Buddhist holy places or objects, such as Buddha images, or even persons, including Gotama Buddha himself. During the British colonial period, ordinary Burmese often referred respectfully to Burmese civil servants as paya gyi (great lord). Thus the word can refer to any object, place, or person deemed worthy of veneration.
