Beach / Pool Club
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.

  •  From the main hall guests can enjoy on the terrace. Hand drawn and not too busy, I was solo, so vendors ' children's vantage on the terrace.  It was Japan who indeed does not meet, anywhere in all of Japan language to manipulate child vendors are.  Narrow stairs, burning so hot that was at the foot of the terrace, but green sheet like the children took to it. Acrophobia is the view from there was great I just fine. Talking with our kids, and we asked. But they want notes (my students not to), or put bills in other countries even though the collection does not have paper money in Japan and then show. If you showed it would end. Japan is expensive compared to the lowest banknote worth in other countries. So a collection and it's not. 5 yen coin is had. Well, I hear talk and 100 yen coin and 50 Yen in jade, was released. Compared to other Asian comes easily. I'll have the same thing over and over again. Came home, then I and children waving hands and pretending the child and interesting. Compared to said if you're not shopping Bagan some famous temples in Japan cosmetics, e.g. lipstick or get better was (laughs)

  • Nice view from here
  • This pagoda is very good sunrise.
