Well worth a visit as it has excellent mural painting from the early 13th AD . Again quite different to some of the other temples

The temple in bagan with best preserved carvings, this is also a great sunset spot. Shwe-San-daw pagoda is known as the sunset watching spot, but was full of people already by 4:30. Shwe-gu-Gyi is less crowded and just as nice of a terrace view although you don't get the same background of lots of temples for your view.

UNESCO in the 1980s did restoration work at several pagodas such as at this one, Nagayon, and Abeyadana Pahto. Here we see the most amount of restored frescoes by square footage anywhere in Bagan. No photographs or video are allowed. Definitely bring a strong flashlight or better yet, a small searchlight to see the frescoes. If you were with a group with each person having a light, more can be seen by working together. There was an informal guide with a strong light who pointed out highlights; well worth the donation at the end. Not to be missed!
