There is a foundation remain near the entrance, marking the Ordained Center during Pagan Empire. Small Pagoda, a bit far from old Bagan, less visited.

My second time at this temple and I still find it quite stunning... It's neither the biggest or the most popular, but it's architecture is beautiful and the white colour makes it unique. If you are adventurous, go take a look behind it. You will...More

this temple is covered in plaster and not the best one to visit in Bagan, It also has damage from an earth quake.

Smaller temple but no less impressive. Far less tourists than many others with a beautiful interior - paintings and statues. The outside is quite stunning in all white.

This smaller temple doesn't seem to suffer from the problem of massive hordes of visitors, and is quite pleasant as a result. Distinctive white appearance with some beautiful murals still visible inside. Unfortunately it seems to have suffered some damage in the recent earthquake.

This is one of the must go when you are in Bagan. Even from the outside this temple looks different than the others. Absolutely magnificent!

Close to Minnanthu village whose people are the caretakers, this small white temple has some interesting murals inside and is worth a visit. But rather than just seeing the temple, my advice is to take time to also explore the ruins and buildings that are...More
