  • 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.

  • 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.
