“Nice little tempel”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

A not too special tempel, especially compared with Ananda for example. But certainly worth a short visit, and since most likely you will see the Manuha temple just opposite it does not hurt to take the short walk.

The tempel is special, it might even have been an hinduistic once so you can walk right into the center and look at the nice reliefs they have there. Best pictures can be taken from the inside, The outside is not that spectacular.

“Looks boring until you get up close”
Reviewed 11 May 2013 via mobile

you may expect this place to be boring compared with the others, but once you get close up you can see beautiful carvings and unique windows.

“King's prison”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

It is near the Manuha Temple and some believe that this building was King's Manuha prison.
The exterior of the Temple is not impressive but has some beutiful curved windows through which light comes in but not enough to lighten the amazing curvings of the interior.Worth to see!
