Htilominlo Pahto, Bagan

4.4
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. Make your Bagan itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • Htilominlo temple is named after the king in whose reign it was built. It is said that it is built on the site where he was chosen to be the king. The best place to start one's pilgrimage in this temple city of Bagan, it is a beautiful three storeyed structure of red brick. There are four statues of Buddha facing four directions . The effects of an earthquake are evident here. But its sanctity is still intact.
