The temple per-se is not as attractive as other Bagan Pagodas. But it has 2 interesting features. Firstly, historical: this is where King Manuha of Thaton, enemy of Bagan King Anawrahta was said to be held in solitary confinement. Secondly, architectural: there are many Hindu...More

This is a very different Bagan experience, rather than lots of Buddha statues it had some wonderful sandstone carvings. These are very intricate and well worth seeing. The temple has been damaged in an earthquake, so you can only go part way; however you can...More

What set this pagoda apart is its stone carving. The pagoda itself is small and not much to see, but rather than mural paintings, it has stone carvings on the wall. If you have time, take a look.

Taken there by tour guide. This pagoda is next to Manuha temple and good for a short visit. It has some Buddhist wall paintings but more Hindu design (central open space, kind of like at Angkor Wat in Cambodia), and interesting carving on side of...More

Some may pass this by but it has the finest stone carvings in Bagan. It's also right next to the Manuha temple which you will want to see so why not pop next door and take a peek. It was not busy when we visited...More

There is so much on offer in Bagan and New Bagan that you might be tempted to leave this temple off your list, but if you have time there are some wonderful, intricate carvings to see. When we visited metal supports had been placed inside...More
