  • Is's tallest Temple in Bagan built in the first half of the 12th century. Was much bigger impression, seems the height of 61 m. This temple was at the local shrine was coming. Looks in the intently pray very refreshing, as well as Buddhists ' prayer to God and maybe I'll? "That came to mind. Incense offerings such as too many, but dangerous in a fire because it is banned in Bagan. This temple not barefoot during the visit.

  • In a very large temple located in old Bagan, was buzzing with activity. I think you go into Bagan one of Miss Temple. Japanese War Memorial of those who died in World War II in a monastery in this temple, located at the right end. Next to the souvenir shop is kindly subways bring incense. In addition, gave gratuity to the monks of the monastery.

  • Thatbyinnyu dates back to the 12th century and is a good place to start your visit of Bagan temples. It is also one of the biggest. It has 3 niches for Buddhas. Wall paintings are also nice.
