    Its frescoes are worth a visit, though this little pagoda is usually overlooked and it's a shame: the walls are painted black and white paintings on the ceiling there are the footprints of Buddha. In the sanctuary there is a Golden Buddha with a series of paintings which tell the life. Nice view over the Irrawaddy River, especially at sunset. In the square in front of some fruit and flower stall.

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.
