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.

  • Famous one in Bagan. Historic Pagoda.
  • 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....
  • A massive temple with 4 golden Buddha sculptures and remains of old paintings.
  • Looks great at dusk when the lights come on.
  • Very interesting place to visit in Bagan
