Htilominlo is 1 of my favorite temples in Bagan. It has a wall surrounding the main temple(which initially I mistook it as old Bagan on the map). There're 4 main golden buddha statues in the temple's 4 directions, with heights reaching the ceilings. As you walk further in behind, there're hundreds more smaller buddha statues placed all over inside the... More

Bagan is the main attraction to tourist as the archeological site of ancient city of Myanmar with many Buddhist temples, pagodas and monasteries that were constructed in the Bagan Plains in the 11th to 13th century, 2,000 still remain and it easily rivals Angkor Wat in Cambodia.

Another of the tall temples in Bagan, the Htilominlo is striking for its symmetry and ornate features on the exterior, particularly the doorways. It has the usual four Bhuddas facing the cardinal points. Some of the exterior detail has been renovated, but some of the original work is still there to see. Worth a look.

Another old temple of Myanmar full of history worth taking a look if you can find the time, not as grand as other temples. Make sure to take a Guide or Guide book as language is a problem in Myanmar. Also be appropriately dressed as a mark of respect to Buddhism

Htilominlo temple is one of the most visited temples in Old Bagan. You can see it from most parts of the plain because of its 46 meters height. it was built between 1211-1230 AD by King Nandaungmya at the beginning of its reign to commemorate that on that spot he was selected as crown prince between the five sons of...

After seeing so many temples I don't really remember this temple. If you are a real tight-budget traveller and do not want to pay the USD 15 tax, you should avoid this temple and Shwesandaw temple. There were no checks at the more obscure temples and the must-visit Ananda temple. The location of this temple is quite central so easy... More

Big but not beautiful as the others. The story of this pagoda is from the history. When the king are dying, he cannot choose the new king. Then, he let his umbrella choose by his sons standing around and the one whom this umbrella point at would be the new king.
