Htilominlo Pahto, Bagan

(4.5/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to visit Htilominlo Pahto during your Bagan vacation using our convenient Bagan family vacation planner.

  • A slightly different temple from the others on the main tourist beat. Be prepared to ward off lots of vendors, but they'll leave you alone if you firmly & politely say you're not interested.
  • I am really interesting the sand painting shop there.
  • အေးချမ်း
  • Built with red brick
  • With pomp, but the sublime feeling. Into Bagan to go take a look at.
