  • The Dhammayazika is a beautiful Buddhist temple including ochre colors on a part and gilding on the top. Beautiful building in very good condition, from the 23rd century with pretty outdoor fairways with a bouguinvilliers. Braux Golden Buddhas. A must see!

  • Electric bike is towards the bus station about 10 minutes from the ways. It is a thing that was built to fit around the end of the 12th century from the King of Sri Lanka into Bagan King presented the Buddha relics. Other temples are built based on the square, but here is the Pentagon-based, there are five small stupas around. I don't know why, but looks good and changes in design, I think.

  • Without really knowing why, I enjoyed this stupa that charmed me and where I stayed long enough.

  • 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
