  • Has become a symbol tower is a landmark building, the tallest in Bagan. And leisure time of sunset and sunrise, tabinui Temple, size and even if you know. Was christened the building itself is also in a more close look at from afar and see the whole cool I think. Nearby souvenir shops stores there.

  • Bagan's tallest building, previously had similar appearance to Japan's Parliament. Decorated with pinnacles, now a different impression. Lit up at night and makes a fantastic feeling. 4 of Bagan is one of the buildings. I think it's less impressive compared with Ananda, and also in the tower. Therefore, think about taking photos of the look or enough. Close to the monastery, is a Japanese War Memorial. Visit the management people have come incense for burning incense. In addition, enters the monastery buildings and prelate 呉remasu out tea.  It would make an offering of at least 5000 Chuck.
