#49 of 74 in Things to do in Bagan
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.

  • Is the only door remained, with two niches where there are two statues of two nat, a man and a woman which is tied up a bloody legend. The locals, according to an old tradition, bring offerings to nat before going through the door.

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.
