Htilominlo Pahto, Bagan

4.5
Marking a spot where its founder was chosen to be the successor of the Pagan dynasty throne, Htilominlo Pahto attracts visitors with its lavish stucco decoration. King Htilominlo--who was more interested in practicing Buddhism and studies than in leading the country--built this 46 m (150 ft) tall red-brick temple at the beginning of the 13th century. Notice the elaborate exterior carvings that depict mythological female monsters and hybrid creatures. The interior retains some faded frescos and four gilded statues of the Buddha. The temple is surrounded by souvenir stalls. Make your Bagan itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • Means umbrella and a re built to commemorate his election, after being chosen from among five children, because his father had been white umbrella leaning toward him, as a sign of preference and designates it as official successor. The square base of red bricks measure 140mt on each side, where there are terraces and has three floors.

  • The distinction is not so much from the property itself still beautiful to behold, but from the little market with many stalls full of aromas, colours and sounds.

  • Beautiful temple, built late, his style gives it its uniqueness in the landscape of the plain of Bagan where, it must be said, it is difficult to recognize individually each temple. 4 majestic Buddhas sit at the cardinal 4 entries and regardless if its Tower in corncob is hidden under a tangle of bamboo, it remains beautiful and one of my favorites.

  • One of my favourites in Bagan....I just like it. The feel of walking around in the courtyard, jus gives me a serene feeling. What could have been in the past, is replaced with the array of stores selling local handicrafts and souvenirs. But that does not take away the beauty and charm of this place. This place is where the story of the umbrella king will be told :) Nice story that adds to the appeal of the place for me. The architecture, the way the bricks were laid....
