Htilominlo Pahto, Bagan

4.4
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.

    This spacious area around the temple. In addition to stroll inside the temple, there is also a souvenir shop of the fakrop area, select shopping and still have bases outside the Temple pagoda, which can climb to give him/her a shot seen around and pagoda. For you who like to buy here's inexpensive. But the need to negotiate.

    Lots of shop vendors surrounding the temple. Heavily visited by tourists especially tour groups. If thirsty, there's a coconut vendor just before the temple. Walk clockwise inside the temple to go one round. The wall murals are heavily damaged. When we visited, the temple top was under repair due to damage from the earthquake. This temple not allowed to climb to the top. There's a small monastery temple just outside one of the side gate. Many lady vendors will show you to the top of the monastery ( 1 min walk ) for a panoramic view of Htilominlo. They'll offer to take your pictures and escort you back. Their service is so that tourists will visit their shop in the hope of buying some souvenirs. But they were not aggressive & there's no pressure to buy from them.

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.
