Manuha Temple, Bagan

3.7
#11 of 31 in Historic Sites in Bagan
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • To build a King who was captured as a hostage, suffered imprisonment of suppressed pain, this stupa statues in front for large seated Buddha back to Wat Pho are crowded in a small space, a mood of oppression breath, to danger.

  • Built in 1067, is one of the oldest in Bagan. Very nice huge statues of the Buddha.

  • Anyway big Buddha has been enshrined. Narrow aisle, everyone try photo shoot from different angles, so good breakfast than I thought. Visit to the course since the last people in Myanmar not to disturb you.

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.
