Beautiful temple

One of the landmarks in Bagan's plain, not to be missed. Vendors are gentle, more than the average. Be careful on the sandy road.

The story behind this plus the grandness of the temple will win you over, and there are plenty of spots for you to explore without running into tourists. The high-ceiling halls are amazing as the light seeps through. Don't miss out on this one.

This was the temple I wanted to visit the most for its unique design and it's story. Arrived just after 6 this morning on my rented ebike, so I even beat the locals. Got some great pics during sunrise. Not able to climb or get access to higher levels. Some areas outside were also taped off due to unstable conditions.... More

Every temple has its own story, but this one is a must that you must know. Ask the local or at least Google about the story behind this temple before you go, to have a better understanding and creepy feeling whenever you're inside.

A fantastic Temple to visit among all the temples and pagodas in Bagan. This is a little hidden away, you need to walk into it (about 5 mins walk from parking area). Not crowed with tourist, it offers the tranquility of a temple, with time for reflection and seeing the different Buddhist statutes. The surrounding ground is great to walk... More

The temple is a unique structure Pyramid shaped and looking vaguely Aztec. Very impressive. Even more impressive was the Dhammangyi Si ka Pagoda not very far from Dhammangyi temple. This enormous structure a little away from normal road has beautiful pagodas on each of the four sides and a huge courtyard. Very peaceful. We found it by mistake as we... More
