  • I went there in February 2019. It is a four-layered temple famous for being the highest in Bagan. The temple in Old Bagan was crowded with many tourists and worshippers. Inside the temple is connected by a corridor connecting the four corners, and the buddha statue covered with gold is enshrined in the north, south, east, east, and south.

  • 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!!
