Visit Dhammayazika Pagoda to see terracotta tiles depicting scenes from the Jataka tales, stories about previous lives of the Buddha. You can enter the building through any of five entrances, with the layout of the pagoda in a pentagonal shape. Each side of the pagoda displays an image of the Buddha, enshrined in a small temple. 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. To see the Maitreya Buddha, the future Buddha, go to the fifth shrine.

  • The Stupa has the largest pentagonal base among the other local temples which gives you a different architectural structure. Well maintained but is in the process of recovery due to recent seismic phenomena in the region.

  • When I heard the sunset watching spot featured ways staff introduced is located to the North of this pagoda. This building is on the roof can climb like is will. Height is not necessary, but even Bagan located on the East side, so is ideal for sunset watching. Last time we went to the Japanese three and was a local souvenir shop, only a minor Buri.

Where to stay in Bagan

Bagan accommodations try their best to fit in with the atmosphere of spirituality and mystery that clings to the temple town. As such, you won't find any high-rise hotels here. Instead, a number of squat wooden lodges, converted traditional houses, and new boutique resorts (all pretty low to the ground) provide the main options for those staying in town. Among them, you'll find some that offer a slightly better range of facilities--including well-maintained pools and restaurants--and others that offer basic dormitory accommodation.
