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.

  • Great place to see the old style of Myanmar in Bagan. Red bricks, beautiful Buddha statue inside, not so crowded. Should be the one you must visit among thounsands of temples here.  more »
  • A temple of the 11th - 13th, big, huge. The name means "sunshade wants, the King wants to" and was a peculiar system to donate the Kingdom to one of the three children, according to wherever it struck the umbrella. Legend or not, is very nice inside and out with Budhas

  • This is a beautiful temple that is built with the beautiful red brick. The morning gives you a warm glow from the rising sun on this unbelievable structure.  more »

  • 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....
  • Looks great at dusk when the lights come on.

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.
