Dhammayazika Pagoda, Bagan

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.

  • Located in a secluded area on the East side of Bagan, undoubtedly for the Golden Bell towers. Location immersed in the peace and quiet, ideal to contemplate and reflect.

  • Located close to the ways. Walking barefoot, to visit after a late morning in direct sunlight the pagoda terrace hot and was very difficult. Note that the difference between unusual and the other pagoda shape (Pentagon? ) Interesting and funny.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful pagoda to watch the early sunrise & hot air ballon.
  • Great Pagoda. the first one I saw I'm Bagan lovely red colour big pagoda
  • Quite hidden with beautiful carvings.
