Gawdawpalin Temple, Bagan

3.8
Nine centuries old, Gawdawpalin Temple represents a historic monument worth visiting, whether you're a history-lover or simply enjoy old architecture. The temple stands as the second tallest religious site in the region, boasting two floors and seven gloriously decorated terraces. Although it was damaged in an earthquake some 40 years ago, the renovation done since has restored the temple's authentic look and feel. Explore the temple and the pagoda, and see where believers go to pray, meditate, or practice traditional Buddhist rituals.

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.
