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

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

When you look at this beauty, you can imagine how it was before the time fade away some of it. Htilominlo temples is typical Bagan style. Like in each one you have the Four faces Golden Buddha. We enjoy taking photos playing with the light and the curve ceiling. This one, the outside is more like in a circle and... More

Another must see in Bagan, with a sort of viewing platform at one corner that gives brilliant views of the Bagan plains.

A nice tempel where a very impressive outside does not leave much room inside. As usual very nice statues around the tempel so worth some time to spned looking for smaller details. But if the tempels in Bagan not the nicest.
