Tharabar Gate, Bagan

(2.8/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very good place to stay with beautiful specious rooms, large selection of breakfast items, and very convenient location though it all comes at cost. With the car rental services that typically end their services at sunset in Bagan, having easy access to the restaurants on foot from the hotel is critical requirement in Bagan. There are two good restaurants just next door to the hotel. Also there is a popular Burmese Buffet restaurant near the western gate of the hotel. Across the street, there are a few teahouses, a couple of vegetarian restaurants including one that very popular, and a couple more typical Burmese restaurants that always packed with the locals and tourists. In terms of tourist attractions, there is a large Burmese village in the north side (back) of the hotel, several gigantic temples including Ananda, Thatbyinnyu, and palace excavation site, and newly reconstructed palace where there nightly traditional dances are performed with buffet dinner. Those who need a ride to explore Bagan, there are several e-bike stands, a horse cart stand and bicycle rental service just outside hotel.
  • Fell in love with this place at first sight. The lobby is totally open-air -- just a serene, lovely area with tables and chairs and festive banners (and waiter service). The pool is gorgeous, and with Myanmar's weather it's sheer heaven day or night. The rooms are large and stylish but rather barnlike and decorated plainly. Toss in the dirt-cheap, incredibly delicious restaurants right across the street and you've got a don't-miss hotel.
