Htilominlo was one of the temples with the most persistent vendors. They will not leave you alone until you agree to buy something, which is a bit too much! It is a great temple with nice Buddha images and murals, but the stairways to the top are locked. I found street vendors who offered a nice view from a temple... More

Take a walk around the temple inside and outside. Inside to see the statues and murals, and outside for the shops. Many vendors selling just about the same things. Toilets available here for a small fee.

It is a large temple built by a popular king, so there are a bunch of smaller temples built by the people dedicated to the king that surrounds the landscape. In the back, there is a small building with rooftop access to see all the small temples in the landscape.

If you love old bagan do not miss this. Everywhere you look there are more beautiful parts of the old city to see. It is worth it to take your time and visit the Pagodas to see the differentiations!

This temple was built by King Natapaya who was given the name Htilominlo, meaning the king who chose the umbrella (Hti). Umbrellas are a symbol of protection for the king and the queen. The king made chose his heir among his 4 sons by an umbrella. This temple has 4 similar rooms, all with big Buddha statues.

Another of the large temples at Bagan and one which most people will find time to visit. It's one of the most aesthetically pleasing and offers plenty to see inside and out. We did not find those trying to sell us things overly obtrusive, after all they are only trying to make a living and do so with in the... More

This temple is impressive 46m tall with lovely wall and ceiling murals. Beautiful facade surrounded by shops which weren't pushy. We sat down to have yummy coconut water and enjoy the ambience.

From my understanding, Htilominlo has the best conserved mural paintings in Bagan area, and they are stunning.

Don't go if you don't want to be approached by shopkeepers the whole way around. Had a refreshing coconut halfway around, which was great!

Well worth a visit. However, it is clearly a major tourist spot, and one will have to contend with the extensive attached commercialism that comes with it, as well as likely checks by the Tourist Police or Security that you have a visitor pass (if a foreigner). The temple itself has excellent architecture, and contains wonderful wall and ceiling murals.
