I am not sure why, but I find that this is easily the most calming temple that I've been to. The gentle breeze, the bells slowly chiming, the monks walking about, the faithful Buddhists offering up their prayers, the narrow paths, I love it.

The interior houses 4 gilded Buddhas at the cardinal points & in the courtyard outside are some interesting craft shops. There is a shop with hill tribe weavers & another with... More

The exotic style and authentic state of this temple really appealed to me. It differs from the others and should not be missed when visiting Old Bagan.

Another impressive temple. Should not miss seeing it from a small pagoda rebuilt there right next door, the picture is stunning.

Stunning architecture, amazing paintings inside. You don't really need much more but if you do there are also four Golden Buddhas facing N, S, E & W. Personally one of my favorites. Locals pronounce it tilly-min-lo.

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.

Thank jrandsk
