Pay attention to the bell-shaped dome on the top of the pagoda, with concentric rings and lotus buds giving the dome an impressive aesthetic.

  • This is an amazing gold-topped pagoda with some other interesting temples nearby. Hint: There's a flat-topped building just to the North of the pagoda that's great for sunrise/sunset!
  • The golden roof shines in the sun and you can walk the perimeter of the pentagonal temple. Gorgeous piece of architecture.
  • Nice Pagoda !
  • A nice place for sunrise view if you stay in New Bagan Zone.
  • Worth the visit
