This was yet another major temple that was on my list of must see locations and it really can't be missed visually or otherwise. Thatbyinnyu is the biggest temple in all of Bagan and virtually towers above the trees and plains. It can be seen from many of the nearby areas and is a truly magnificent structure. You can also walk around the inside of the temple where there are a number of seated Buddhas along the walls.
Very beautiful temple though cool tops. The main colorization of this temple is a weathering white and black, yet there are still everlasting golden prangs protruding from the perimeter of the top plus the main prang which glitters in gold.
In short, a big temple located in Old Bagan that everyone must see. Probably my favorite temples among the entire town aside from Ananda Temple.
* If you're staying in New Bagan, it be reached by about a twenty minute bike ride. Or, you can just see it along with viewing the other temples in the area via horse and cart.
