Manuha Temple, Bagan

(160+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
One of the oldest temples in the Bagan region, the unusual Manuha Temple features three enormous Buddha statues, crammed into small rooms inside the impressive structure. The temple was reputedly built by the imprisoned King Manuha, who was allowed to build it in 1059, and constructed these large effigies trapped internally as a way of conveying his plight. Climb to the top of the central gold-leafed pagoda, where you can see the largest sitting Buddha; his face, which appears grim when viewed below, takes on a contented expression with the changed aspect. Put Manuha Temple and other Bagan attractions into our Bagan trip itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • It was a strange spot pretty cramped where Buddha is enshrined. If the Buddha saying things like that, though ugly cute!. Slept like a sleeping Buddha was in the back, but also dark narrow cave. For others not in is very impressive and memorable place.

  • Memorable into Bagan mingbao village is a tourist attraction. Defeated in battle with the King of Bagan Anawrahta Mon is said to be built by King Manouch and warped King's feelings are evident. Buddha 3 body sitting and behind the scenes laying down in a cramped building. They have skirted the Bagan, guide for kindness of many religious facilities, but not religious what's something confused. Curiously, here many HA and damayanzy Patau, Ananda---Patau three back to Japan, forget the name and his remains in the memory. I think better rather than around the pagodas too far for people first go into Bagan, Bagan's unique atmosphere.
