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.

  • It's a one of the many temples in Bagan. Nothing much different from other temples but it has a beautiful garden. A little bit far to get there when compared to other temples.
  • Don’t miss it just because it’s far. It’s one of the nicest pagodas.
