Mingala Zedi, Bagan

3.2
Mingalazedi Pagoda is a Buddhist stupa located in Bagan, Burma. Construction started in 1274 during the reign of King Narathihapate. The pagoda is one of few temples in Bagan with a full set of glazed terra cotta tiles depicting the Jataka. The pagoda was built in brick and contains several terraces leading to large pot-shaped stupa at its centre, topped by a bejewelled umbrella. Mingalazedi Pagoda was built a few years before the First Burmese Empire (Pagan Kingdom) was pillaged by the Mongols.

Near the temple there is a nice library (see photo), one of the few still visible in Bagan.

  • Is the last of the great temples built in Bagan before Mongol armies led by Kublai Khan invaded the Kingdom, which led to the end of the Empire Bagan. The pagoda is a late period Bagan style, symmetrical structure approximately 40 meters high.

  • Nice views from a few levels up the stupa as the sun goes down. You can no longer climb to the top (of the stupa - not the temple) but you can still go up to the gated fence & view from there. Just be careful as the steps are narrow!
  • Nice
  • I being there for sunrise view of Bagan. The shop is interesting.
