Thatbyinnyu Temple Reviews
It is not far from the famous Ananda temple. This structure of imposing majesty towers over other temples in the vicinity. With elaborately decorated stupas on all corners of this double storeyed temple, it has been built to signify the omniscience of Lord Buddha. The elevation literally inspires one to rise above the mundane and attain divinity.
A nice place in Bagan!!
