Shwe-gyu-gyi, Bagan

(4.7/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Absorb the peaceful surroundings of Shwe-gyu-gyi, a 12th-century Indian temple boasting mixtures of Romanesque and Gothic architectural styles. Stone slabs bearing ancient inscriptions suggest that the holy structure took seven months to complete. It consists of three buildings featuring spires reaching for the sky. The main building sits upon a 3 m (12 ft) tall foundation. Step through its famous wooden carved doors to find a brightly lit interior, illuminated with natural light from eleven arched windows and wide-open corridors. Climb to the top floor and out onto the terrace to enjoy magnificent views of pristine scenery. Footwear is not allowed inside. Plan to see Shwe-gyu-gyi and other attractions that appeal to you using our Bagan vacation planner.

  • Shwegugyi temple is a nice small temple on which we were able to climb onto the roof. Inside, beautiful sculptures in stucco and a teak Buddha. Construction of the 12th century.

  • And shueguudzii seems to mean a great golden arches. Seems to be an impressive entrance arch is 3 m high. It is tradition, only completed in seven months. Lovely balanced design is impressive. Appreciation of sunsets from the terrace on the second floor of Asahi was famous, but it feels.
