It was one of the first temples that I visited in Bagan. It's more interesting from outside. The interiors are not impressive (some Buddhas statues).
I was here very early; so there were no vendors to bother me! In the morning, the warm sun rays give the facade a nice warm feel. It looks good on photographs. Better still, once done, go to the opposite small stupa. Climb up to have great warm pix of Gawdawpalin. You can also have some good shots of the... More
This is a white tall temple in old Bagan. Very close to Bagan Thande hotel or Bagan hotel. You easliy find this while you are in old Bagan since it is tall and impressive architecture. There are some Buddha inside.
This temple is pretty indeed but it is over run with aggressive vendors. Don't feel bad for not going inside, it is just boring whitewashed walls. Nice to have as part of your sunset photos though.
gaw-daw palin is supposedly one of the best preserved and a mixture of Burmese and Indian style. Did not look very different from that-byin-nyu or hti-Lo-min-Lo to me. Worth a stop since on the same road learns bupaya in the old bagan

One of Bagan's biggest let-downs from our perspective. A boringly white-washed wall inside and a disproportionately irritating layer of hawkers to navigate just to get to the main temple. Billed as one of the must-sees but don't feel bad about skipping this place.
Nicely lit up at night and can see the tops of this from the pool area from the hotel. Hotel itself not much to rave on about. The temple is fine. Yet another temple, what can I say? I am so templed-out, I am getting delirious.
This temple is very cool and although Thatbyinnyu has gold topped prangs, this one has no gold except on the main prang (the name for the top pointed element on the tops of temples). One can certainly tell this temple is quite old by the two toned black and white weathering walls. It adds to the obvious age of this... More
