Not as aesthetically pleasing compared to Htilominlo, Ananda or Sulamani. Inside makes for an easier walking because it is laid with tiles, giving the impression you are inside a Catholic convent while the Buddhas will remind that you are still in a Buddhist temple. My...More

This is the tallest temple in Bagan and it is hard not to notice it. It's architecture is impressive and beautiful. The interior of the temple is less impressive than its exterior.
