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.

This is a very striking 3-storeys red brick structure. The square base is 140ft. across on each sides. The imposing central spire is over 150ft tall. Due to earthquake damages, visitors are not allowed into the upper levels. But there is plenty to see on the ground level. Within the sanctuary walls there are many arched recesses with small Buddha... More

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.
