Htilominlo Pahto, Bagan

(260+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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.
  • One of my favourites in Bagan....I just like it
  • Go beyond the west wall to a small building, walk up the stairs, good view of Htilominlo
  • There's a small building beside the temple where you can take great pictures of the temple and it's surroundings.
  • Beautiful temple with lot of tourists.
