  • It is difficult to describe what it is like viewing the temples and Pagodas in Bagan. But the whole experience is to be treasured. Enjoy! 
  • It is a 2 second-highest in the road to Bagan pagodas. I think not that impressive inside, so if you have time can stop by good?.

  • It is a massive Temple, not with slat relatively Temple. Maybe that's why in the 1975 earthquake, over half the increase that is affected. Temples in Bagan 2 second-highest end repair is now attracting tourists.
