Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Dhammayazika is a very nice, isolated temple. It is especially impressive from the balloon and from the distance because of the golden pagoda surrounded by an intense red colour. The pagoda rests on three hexagonal terraces. This is a very unique temple's characteristic. It has five shrines dedicated to Buddha. Our first interactions with temple were from the balloon and at sunset. We saw the sunset from a small, adjacent library that you could still climb. From the library, the pagoda is on the left and looks stunning. We visited Dhammayazika in the morning. There were very few backpackers. At sunset is also very quiet.

The pagoda has been extensively restored by the local authorities. Restoration is interesting and subsequently, the pagoda looks beautiful; however, the restoration is not correct.

Disabled facilities and toilets could be improved. Underfloor heating worked a bit too well. Staff of the attraction have been very well versed to promote attraction merchandise. But excellent choice for a late afternoon's entertainment.

A bit away from the other temples, this is very well worth a visit. I went in the morning before 9 am. The local are doing their prayers and no other tourists when I visited.

Absolutely not necessary to do any (illegal) climbing for a sunset/sunrise. It’s absolutely worth a visit in its own right, because it has a chance to be a genuine local experience and it is a fantastic structure.

So this might not be the most amazing temple BUT you can climb it!!

Most of the temples have locks and metal doors so you can’t climb but this one has only sticks so you can easily climb it. You can see the sunset from this temple
However if you want to see the sunrise this temple is closed BUT there is a smaller temple that is right next to this one
How to get there: once you arrive early in the morning to this temple (is going to be closed) so you turn left and follow the dirt road. You are going to see a bunch of ebikes and buses so stop there park and walk to the smaller temple, you will see the people on the roof of it. The picture are from there
If you arrive at 6:30-6:45 you will be fine

Normal Buddhist temples a have square shaped base --- the 4 sides face 4 cardinal directions with a Buddha icon in each direction. This pagoda has a Pentagon base --- the fifth side is for another Buddha-to-be who will be born to grace the world (Metteya or Maitreya). We saw it in the moonlight and it was really beautiful. If you go on a balloon trip, this is one temple that you can easily spot from top. By the side of Dhammayazaka is a an ancient library with a terrace. The terrace is a great spot to watch the sunset. (Bagan has unpolluted skies, so sunsets are a treat)

We visited this new pagoda on the advice of our hotel staff. It was located in a quiet surrounding, but very beautiful. Did not like the modern day tiles fixed. No where by any means related to pagoda. By colours used

This is one of the best located in the main town. It's best to just get a tour guide to take you so he can explain a few things. The best part about hiring an inexpensive local tuk tuk tour guide is they know where to take the perfect photos! I had a driver, history lesson and person photographer all in one! I got lucky to find him so I thought I'd share with you all!

Fantastic temple I would have loved to see from above. You can sense the magnitude of this temple when you tiptoe around on the somewhat hot marble. Spend quite some time here, as it was not overrun by visitors. A must see in my book.

This was our first place during our visit to Myanmar. That's why we cherish with special love. Even more, the architecture is special.

Of all the temples. pagodas, stupas etc we visited on our trip to Myamnar, and there were many, this was one of my favourites. It took some finding after seeing it from all sorts of angles at other spots and it was virtually deserted - not a tour bus in site. It is different to other temples in that it is 5 sided. The top fell off in an earthquake: you can see the replacement being made in a covered area in the compound.
From here you can get back to Bagan on the tarmac road or on the mud via Dhammayangyi - great fun.
