The hotel I stayed recommended this pagoda to view sunrise. I suspect it was because it was less than ten minutes away, and climbing it was relatively safe. I believe most, if not all, pagodas involve climbing. My driver took me to two others but...More

A stunning sunrise shared with around ten other people but completely worth it. The very was great and at the moment you can still climb. Don't forget your visitor card as they will move then likely ask for it. Enjoy!

This temple also is one of the places to watch sunrise and dawn at Bagan but not as high as others. Many tourists come here too. Try once, still great!

Came here 2 days to watch sunrise. There is unnamed template near Bulethi that is the best place to watch sunrise with balloon in Bagan. Better than Shwesandaw.
