    After two days of temple-hopping, all of the temples in Bagan start to blend together. But the detail of Mahabodhi sets it apart. The repetitive images of Buddha were quite stunning. Look for the youn...  more »

    Structured in the image of the Indian Temple, stately and imposing, although over the years it has undergone (as all areas) some damage as a result of jolts ... must see ...

    The Mahabodi temple is a replica to the small scale of the temple of the Mahabodhi of Bodh Gaya in India. Like the original, it is architectural gupta, rectangular, with a high anantapura to the stop lines. Niches on its surface are 450 statues of Buddhas. All of the Mahabodhi temple is one of the four holy sites related to the life of the Buddha, including his enlightenment.

    This temple was built in the same style of the original one at Bodh Gaya in India, the place of Lord Buddha's enlightenment.

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.
