Thatbyinnyu Temple Reviews
バガンで一番大きな寺院です。店が多く出て賑わっています。僧院に日本人の慰霊碑があります。お参りしようとすると、僧院の人が出てきてお線香を３本くれました。お金を紙に包んで渡しました。 more »This is the biggest temple in Bagan. It is crowded with many shops. There is a Japanese monument in the monastery. When I tried to pray, the people of the monastery came out and gave me three incense sticks. I wrapped the money in a paper and gave it to me.
オールド・バガンの城壁内、南東の端っこに位置します。バガンで最も高い、白い壁の寺院です。私は時間の関係上この中には入らず、向かいにある僧院の中の日本人戦没者の慰霊碑を訪れました。僧院内には３基の慰霊碑があり、ちゃんと管理人さんがいて、手厚く管理がされていました。わずかですがお布施をさせてもらいました。 more »It is located on the south-east edge of old Bagan walls. It is the tallest, white walled temple in Bagan. I did not go into this in relation to the time, and visited the monument of the Japanese war dead in the monastery opposite. There were three cenotaph in the monastery, and there was a proper management person, and the cordially management had been made. I was allowed to give a little donation.
It is not far from the famous Ananda temple. This structure of imposing majesty towers over other temples in the vicinity. With elaborately decorated stupas on all corners of this double storeyed temple, it has been built to signify the omniscience of Lord Buddha. The elevation literally inspires one to rise above the mundane and attain divinity.
A nice place in Bagan!!
