Discover the dark history of Dhammayan Gyi Temple, dating back to the 12th century. Built by a king who killed his own brother and father to get the throne, the temple has a sinister reputation and the locals often avoid it. Nonetheless, the temple--the largest in the country--affords scenic views if you climb to its upper floors. Walk the long hallways and admire the vast space of the temple, noting the two statues of Gautama and Maitreya. The high ceiling makes the building a perfect nesting spot for bats. Bring a face mask as the place isn't cleaned regularly. Using our international travel planner, Bagan attractions like Dhammayan Gyi Temple can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
Dhammayan Gyi Temple Reviews
When you are in Bagan ,you should visit Dhammayangyi temple because it is biggest temple in Bagan and massive temple. In that temple you could learn brickwork. more »
自分が王位に就くため父と兄を亡き者にした王が、罪の意識にさいなまれて建立に着手したが、自らも暗殺されてしまったため、未完に終わった寺院。一部の隙も無く精緻に積まれたレンガが見事です。鮮やかなフレスコ画が残る東の本尊の穏やかな表情が印象的でした。 more »The temple was unfinished because he had been assassinated by the King, who made his father and brother the heir to the throne, but was tormented by guilt and began to erect. The bricks piled up finely without some chance are splendid. The calm expression of the principal image in the east where vivid frescoes remain was impressive.
The biggest temple in Bagan with interesting story. King Narathu built the temple for his sin of killing his father and brother. It is a picturesque place in Bagan and there is a puppet shop with many puppets hanging on the tree. It's also a good place to take pictures.
One of the beautiful but said to be the tallest of the archaeological set of Buddhist Pagoda in Bagan. The renovation work is in progress. The entire building of the Pagoda could be captured only on climbing an elevated mound at the Fringe of the complex.the best age can be obtained at the dawn when the Sun rays are not in higher degree !
