  • The small pagoda that dates back to approximately 1200 retains a number of interesting frescoes and, for once, in a high-ceilinged and airy environment where you don't need a flashlight to see them. Especially beautiful are those located in the North and in the South portico the painting representing a boat race was unusual but oddly effective. The only problem is that it is often closed and, in our case, having the leadership there has been opened.

  • When I went for the first time without the key, but did not. And twice visited the payartonzoo in the morning, I asked to a souvenir shop, just tourist groups that came from that. The tumbler in a hurry. Besides some fresco remain clean, but more neighborhood payartonzoo and nandamingna is too beautiful, I lost.

  • This temple square, built in 1255, bears the name of Thambula, wife of King Uzana who reigned from 1249 to 1256. It is surrounded by crumbling walls and decorated with frescoes to Chinese influence. A mural of a boat race can be seen from the south entrance; beautiful murals can be seen on the ceiling of the north side. Currently it is undergoing renovation, also is not the only temple in the works. In August 2016 a 6.8 magnitude earthquake hit the site and damaged several Buddhist temples.

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.
