Discover the dark history of Dhammayan Gyi Temple, dating back to the 12th century. Built by a king who killed his own brother and father to get the throne, the temple has a sinister reputation and the locals often avoid it. Nonetheless, the temple--the largest in the country--affords scenic views if you climb to its upper floors. Walk the long hallways and admire the vast space of the temple, noting the two statues of Gautama and Maitreya. The high ceiling makes the building a perfect nesting spot for bats. Bring a face mask as the place isn't cleaned regularly. Using our international travel planner, Bagan attractions like Dhammayan Gyi Temple can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

2019年2月に行きました。 昼と夜の2回行きましたが、特に夜のライトアップが気に入りました。未完成の寺院として有名ですが、重厚で荘厳な外観はとても威厳があります。バガンを代表する寺院の一つだけあって、お土産屋さんは遅くまで開いていて夜でも参拝客が絶えない寺院です。 more »I went there in February 2019. I went there twice, day and night, but I especially liked the light-up at night. It is famous as an unfinished temple, but it has a very dignified appearance with a profound and majestic appearance. There is only one of Bagan's representative temples, and the souvenir shop is open until late and there are always visitors even at night.
The biggest temple in Bagan with interesting story. King Narathu built the temple for his sin of killing his father and brother. It is a picturesque place in Bagan and there is a puppet shop with many puppets hanging on the tree. It's also a good place to take pictures.
One of the beautiful but said to be the tallest of the archaeological set of Buddhist Pagoda in Bagan. The renovation work is in progress. The entire building of the Pagoda could be captured only on climbing an elevated mound at the Fringe of the complex.the best age can be obtained at the dawn when the Sun rays are not in higher degree !
