Htilominlo Pahto, Bagan

(240+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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.

  • It is a very beautiful temple to visit (among the top 10) with a height of almost half a block (47 meters). For this reason it is a building that can be seen from a distance with its slender stupa Finial, Burmese aires and Hindu. I loved to know this temple built in honor of the King Htlimonlo (1211-1231), is a special harmony, with its skilled workers porches side in the form of needles and countless reliefs, moldings and friezes! very elegant can be understood the homage of the Burmese of Bagan royalty to his monarch. The building has a typical Bagan construction system with its mouldings from plaster rock... that has endured over time but needed constant restoration. Unfortunately the year 2016 earthquake affected him damaging parts of its structure. The one which can be seen the scaffolds and the works that are being carried out. It is an unmissable site into Bagan... taking into account its 2500 temples and pagodas, this building is a must-see!

  • 很大的佛塔亦是蒲甘最著名的幾座佛塔之一。佛塔外面有很多賣寄念品和飲品的攤擋,進入塔內立即被裏面的壁畫和雕刻吸引了,還有一座高逾十米的大佛也很壯觀,可惜不能登塔參觀。  more »
  • I found this temple to be quite atmospheric due to the large number of locals plying their wares in the souvenir stalls around the temple grounds. Besides just seeing the temple, which was impressive ...  more »

  • 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.
