Tharabar Gate, Bagan

(90+ reviews on the web)
Monument
See the remains of the ancient city at Tharabar Gate. Built and fortified in the ninth century as a form of protection, this site represents the only remnant of the city walls that once protected the prosperous kingdom. While the rest of the surrounding buildings decayed because of the unstable materials they were built with, the glorious gate still stands. Observe the two brick shrines facing each other, portraying two guardians. Steeped in history and culture, the gate serves as a venue for several festivals throughout the year. Work out when and for how long to visit Tharabar Gate and other Bagan attractions using our handy Bagan itinerary planner.

  • I was dropped off the car at the gate of the entrance of the road and started my road sightseeing from here. Street passes through the gate the deity enshrined in the left and right. This God is ugly glue is my favorite. 2 body is enshrined as the guardian of the gate to chestnuts things catch fire (I believe) it's brother died in the fire, it is not. As a result, no candles or incense, instead and offered a lot of flowers, was double the cuteness.

  • This historic places can be visited during the walking tour of the "Old Bagan" temple sites. Pay particular attention to the two "Nat Spirit Gods" that guard the entrance. There are a number of restaurants nearby if you fancy a break during your tour.
  • Tharabar Gate is well worth a visit. Lots of very interesting Temples all around. Also Sarabha Restaurant near to Tharabar Gate is well worth a visit excellent food.
  • The best preserved of the 12 gates. The moat is empty but still impressive. Seeing this gate gives a good idea of the grandeur of the Bagan dynasty.
  • the only preserved city gate with 2 Nat Shrines.
  • Out of 12 gates in Old Bagan, only one left in good condition guarded by 2 spiritual Nats( Mr.Handsome and Miss Golden Face )
