    Beautiful painting! I love the painting on wall and rood. Unfortunately, It is not really full of all painting due to ages. The tourist will not notice if the small temple has beautiful ancient temple...  more »

    The rectangular building has niches of roof imitation of Burmese wooden architecture and a small central spire rising from the roof. Most of the buildings of this type were wooden and have long since disappeared. It is locked to protect the paintings but a guard opens the doors, inside, there are frescoes in bright colors on the walls and ceilings of the end of the 17th and the beginning of the 18th century. The walls are now the 28 previous images of Buddha, as well as scenes from the life of Guatama Buddha.

    This is a smallish temple (or should I call it a pagoda?) and it contains some fine statues of Buddha, of course, but more dazzling are the wall paintings. They are faded but still worth the visit.  more »

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.
