We spotted this temple only cuz we were actually headed to a viewing-mound (efforts in getting tourists to stop temple climbing for views) to get landscape photos of Bagan. There are two such viewing mounds, close to this temple which get really busy at sunset (5.30 pm onwards). This temple is massive and looks pyramid-ish from a distance. A few drink shops and souvenir shops at the entrance. One nice thing about this temple, aside from its massiveness, is hanging puppets from trees on its grounds (See photo).

Dhammayangyi is right in the middle of a group of some of the coolest temples in Bagan (Like the Guni temples, f'rinstance.) Not only is it the largest temple in Bagan, built in 1167-1170, but it is still has plenty of murals clearly visible. One of my favorites in Bagan -- been there 4 times now.

The outside waliking down a tree lined pathway was lovely and very photogenic.Better in the late afternoon sun as the buildings brickwork takes on a different view. You can walk right round in side .There are some original fresco on some walls and you can see were they have tried to repair the stucco. Nearby you can climb an elevated slope to see the sunset. Lots of traders then

Built in the North Indian style, this temple is supposedly the largest in the Bagan are and so draws the largest number of tourists. To really appreciate the temple, go before 9 am to avoid the crowds. The temple is unusual in that it has twin Budda statues. Vendors abound with the usual tourist items.

Overall poorly maintained. Many wall paintings cannot be seen. Statues are in bad shape. Lack protection from human traffic. Access is dusty. Dress code restriction applied
