The shape of the temple from the outside is very photogenic it is different from the other ones. This was my favorite one from the first day route we did.

This temple is one of the larger temples and it is known for its sunrise/sunset scenes but it has so many people on it you are better off to find another temple. The road leading to the temple has a lot of vendors on it and many kids trying to sell postcards. Firm no's are necessary or they will follow... More

It is rainning very heavely when we visit this temple. Very slippery outside. Be careful if you do the same. The murals in this temple are very beutiful, elegant and vivid. Do not allow to take pictures. It is said that it is indian style architure. To be honest, I cannot tell the difference. But I do like the murala.

This was the first temple I visit. The temple is very impressive from the outside and has a similar design to Sulamani temple. Foreigners are not allow to go up to the towers. However, there were too many sellers here and they tried to sell you. Do bargain if you want to buy something. I paid for a mask only... More

Beautifully preserved - about 800 years old and so majestic. It is beautiful to see from the regular perspective - but also quite impressive to see from atop other temples. The colors of the temples are just spectacular.

This temple is also one of the largest in Bagan and has a similar architectural design as That Byin Nyu and Gaw Daw Palin. The temple lies between Old Bagan and Nyaung U and at temperatures around 40 C, we think biking from Old Bagan is a bit too much and took a taxi instead. From the top of a... More

When I started the temple tour in Old Bagan, the horse cart driver brought me to Htilominlo Pahto. It is a 2-storey building made of red bricks. I saw other tourists climbing the stairway all the way to the top so I followed. This temple offers a good view of the Plains of Bagan so I took the opportunity to... More

Htilominlo is the last Myanmar style temple build in Bagan and is one of the largest temples of Bagan that was built about 1221 AD by King Nandaungmya. It's a two-storied building structure stands 50 meters above the ground and this temple has fine plaster carvings on the arch-pediments, pilaster and frieze. There are nice views of Bagan from this... More

On the left of the road midway between Nyaung U & Old Bagan. A 46m high red brick temple with corn cob spire on top. One of the largest temples in Bagan, popular with tourists & hence many stalls are here. They weren't too pushy & I found the windchimes added to the experience. Highlight is the ornate exterior of... More

A beautiful temple with some great views around the main temple. Look closely for the fresco which are fading fast and really need some form of protection before they are lost forever. the four faces of Buddha are interesting and different from many other temples. The market stall sinside are taking over and the sellers are quite pushy, but if... More
