Dhammayazika Pagoda, Bagan

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.

  • Aside from the main clusters of pagodas. Convenient to go, if you go from new Bagan in the village. One of the biggest pagodas.

  • The most clean and neat pagoda among the rest in my opinion, not crowded and and free from merchant stuff
  • There are 2 Buddhas here, make sure you make the same wish infront of the 2 Buddhas before you proceed to find the other 3 Buddhas in Bagan, make your wish and try to lift the stone if you could lift the stone your wish will be granted
  • Probably one of the most beautiful pagodas on Bagan.
  • Go round the back. Was told that the pagoda behind it is good for sunset by our horse cart driver, and he was right! I like the sunset there more than the one from the tallest temple in Bagan
  • My favorite temple in Bagan. It features a pentagonal layout with five side temples housing buddhas. The main golden Pagoda is under repair from earthquake damage. It is a little out of the way but with a bike or ebike it is easy to get there.
