A fantastic Temple to visit among all the temples and pagodas in Bagan. This is a little hidden away, you need to walk into it (about 5 mins walk from parking area). Not crowed with tourist, it offers the tranquility of a temple, with time for reflection and seeing the different Buddhist statutes. The surrounding ground is great to walk... More

The temple is a unique structure Pyramid shaped and looking vaguely Aztec. Very impressive. Even more impressive was the Dhammangyi Si ka Pagoda not very far from Dhammangyi temple. This enormous structure a little away from normal road has beautiful pagodas on each of the four sides and a huge courtyard. Very peaceful. We found it by mistake as we... More

There are so many places to explore in Bagan that it can get overwhelming. This place is nice but Bagan is full of wonderful places.

The haunted temple. It was said that when the temple was completed the king would die. For that reason it was never completed, thus being a special alternative amongst all the others, No stupa and very big. You should visit this one, but read a bit about it first.

Especially in the late afternoon the parking lot is full with coaches and horse carriages. Bring a torch to explore the temple and to climb the narrow and steep stairs.
