    According to legend the King Manuha lived there his exile; its low and a bit heavy as style suggests that it was built a century later. It is still fascinating: built in sandstone instead of bricks was the first of a series of new buildings replacing the towers at the stupa.

    On the South side of Manh. Do Manh walking in bare feet, but once wore shoes. It is useful to have handy light in the dark, so. Relief of the Brahma are left to clean. I think personally Manh than seeing this one.

    It's located in noteworthy village (village south of Old Bagan) en route to new Bagan.El Temple is adjacent to the Manuha Temple and was built by the Caiti King of the Kingdom of Thaton. Unlike Manuha (gray stucco color) this was built using mortar of mud, stone and brick, which gives it an appearance terracotta similar to most of the pagodas of Bagan. Therefore no stands but it is beautiful to know. They say that it was used as the residence of King Manuha, perhaps for that reason looks more sober and austere than other pagodas. Anyway, it is interesting to explore it to appreciate details Hindus as bas-reliefs of intricate carvings of Brahma, and also representations of other Hindu gods. Also, because Manuha was a Mon, there are many figures and symbols of the Mon within the temple, including hinthas. Each column is decorated with some very delicate very fine work (carry flashlight to illuminate each bas-relief). You can also appreciate the props, the temple is being maintained and restored by damage caused by the latest quake. Taking into account the short time which is available for travel Bagan, and the large number of pagodas and temples that are to visit. It is convenient to organize and manage very well the time available on each site. It will is suitable to visit him once met Manuha. The two complement each other perfectly for a visit. He would return to Bagan again... that wonder!

    A little temple that has four pillars with carvings inside. Due to preservation efforts you can only currently see the front two pillars. It's a very quick stop, but a nice addition when visiting the Manuha Temple.

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.
