  • This temple is well worth the visit, is distinguished by the numerous external niches housing statues of seated Buddha, is well worth the visit.
    View original
  • This temple is a replica of the temple erected in the 6 th century in Bodhgaya in India. It is characterized by the pyramidal shape of the Tower in contrast to the usual bell-shaped curves of the buildings in Myanmar. It testifies to the fascination of the monarchs of Bagan to Indian architecture. A profusion of external ornaments with this stupa to the many niches housing statues of seated Buddhas makes all its interest.

  • Quite different from other temples. The stone work on the spire is impressive. Well worth a visit if close by  more »

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.
