“Stands Tall Above The Rest!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

No matter where you are in Bagan, when you look at the stupas scattered over the massive plains, Thatbyinnyu stands tall above the rest. You cannot ignore this tallest temple in Bagan; at least it looks tallest to me! It looks great even when shot from far.

I wish they allow visitors to go up. The view of the plains would have been awesome from the height!

“white, grand temple with tall golden top”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

This, too, is one of the temples to represent Bagan. Unlike most of other brownish temples, Thabyinnyu has different characteristic to be white (gray?). It is grand, beautiful shape. In front of the phato, there's Thabyinnyu monastery. There's a monument to commemorate Japanese soldiers who lost their lives at WW2.

“The tallest Temple of Bagan”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Nice and Tall. However, all entrance to higher floors were all blocked so no one could go up and see. But it was very ancient also

“Cool looking outside, cool temperature inside”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Check out this gorgeous temple and have a much needed break from the heat by going inside. This temple is another must see in Bagan. Sure it’s crowded, but it’s so beautiful you won’t care. Go!

“Most Beautiful temple in Bagan”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

On the entrance going to this temple, no matter which angle you aim through your camera, it always gives you a beautiful shot. I am exaggerated about it, this temple is so impressive in the design and the scale. All the big trees with large shade around serve some purposes. For me, it saves me from the burning sun and leverages my photo to the next level. Imagine you are standing in the soil entrance to a hidden temple, surrounded by giant trees but you still can see its unique roof among the green color of leaves. It is a great place.
