A ship taking part in the search for the Great Bell of Dhammazedi is seen along the Pegu River in Yangon, August 14, 2014. A salvage team is attempting to retrieve the ancient Great Bell of Dhammazedi, which is believed to have sunk to the bottom of the Rangoon River some 400 years ago after being stolen from the nearby Shwedagon Pagoda. If found, the 270-ton bell, said to be the largest bell ever cast, will be returned to its original home at the pagoda.
