  • I would say that it is one of the top ten temples to visit when you are visiting the Old Bagan city.  more »
  • One of the largest and most beautiful pagodas in the region. Gilding peeled off, but you must see it - it's worth it.  more »
  • It's a one of the many temples in Bagan. Nothing much different from other temples but it has a beautiful garden. A little bit far to get there when compared to other temples.
  • Don’t miss it just because it’s far. It’s one of the nicest pagodas.
