The door to the Buddhist hall in the corridor has been sealed to enter, it is said that the inside is the place where King Nalhu was assassinated, the later generations feel more scary, plus not finished, it was sealed. Worth going!
The tower is made of large red bricks, which are closely connected with bricks, and cannot even be inserted into the needle. Although the gump is a plain, the sunrise and sunset are beautiful because there are no tall buildings and many high towers.
Dama Yangjifo Tower is the largest of the Chagan Towers, and also the outstanding representative of brick towers. Chagan is a plain, but because there is no tall buildings, and there are many high towers, so the sunrise and sunset are very beautiful.
Dama Yangjita is the largest of the towers in the Zagan tower group, and is also the outstanding representative of the brick tower building, from all directions can see the temple of the red brick wall. No tower top, looking like a pyramid, so also called the "pyramid" Zagan. 🏯 No matter from which point of view, the whole brick tower is very heavy. Compared with other temples, there is no gold decoration, it seems more vicissitudes, touching each brick and stone, as if you can hear the echo of history.
Preparation before the trip: Bagan is the most elite historical city, Buddhist cultural site, and tourist attraction in Myanmar. I personally think it is the best place in Myanmar. One must come once in one's life.
Transportation strategy: Bagan is located in central Myanmar, on the left bank of the middle reaches of the Irrawaddy River. The transportation is not particularly convenient. It is definitely not comparable to domestic ones. If you go from Mandalay, the bus is cheaper but the time is longer. Hours one way. It takes more than six hundred gun carts, three to four hours. There is a flight in the morning and evening, and discounts are not expensive. It is more than 300 yuan per person. It is estimated that it will take more than three hours to go to the airport and on the plane. The disadvantage is that the time is fixed. When you arrive at the Bagan Bus Station, if you go to the hotel, you have to pay extra. Basically, the taxi does not use the meter, and more than 10,000 local currency can be handled.
Local must punch cards: There are hundreds of Bagan pagodas. If you really want to visit the main pagodas, it will take two days. Tourists may not remember it. It’s better to pick some key points, such as Damma Yangji Pagoda (the largest brick pagoda), Ananda Temple (the most beautiful), Dabynyu Temple (the tallest), and Ruishantuo Pagoda (this can be climbed to watch the sunset, but now It’s no longer allowed to climb), there are many unknown pagodas with different styles, like the Longmen Grottoes. There are various Buddha statues inside, including standing Buddha, sitting Buddha, reclining Buddha, some are brick towers, some are stone towers, and Some are Shwedagon Pagodas. For all these pagodas, you must take off your shoes and follow the customs. It's just that the foot hurts a bit.
Food guide: The local dishes are more oily. To be honest, there is no recommendation, which can not be compared with Thailand.
Shopping guide: The most famous local ones are puppets, lacquerware and sand paintings. There are shopping spots in front of every major temple. You can buy it in the hotel, but it's not expensive.
Journey experience: It is said that the 480 temples of the Southern Dynasties are very magnificent. Today, when I go to Nanjing, there are only a few remaining. There are still more than 4,000 pagodas in Bagan at the moment, of various sizes, mostly from the 10th to the 12th century. It has been in disrepair for many years. In the past few years, tourists could climb the tower to watch the sunrise. In recent years, government management has strengthened and the tower cannot be climbed. Although some scenery is missing, it does protect the world heritage
Little Tips: Bagan is a great place. I have never seen a place with so many towers. It is very sacred. Although the locals are poor, the people are good. Maybe the Buddhist countries are very simple. Be sure to respect the living habits of the locals and prepare to write local currency of ¥1000 face value. It's okay to tip some.
Damyangji Stupa is the largest stupa in the Bagan stupa group and an outstanding representative of brick pagoda architecture. The tower body is made of large red bricks, and the bricks are closely integrated with each other, and even the needles cannot be inserted. The arches are unique in shape, the cloisters are atmospheric, the carvings are exceptionally beautiful, the light and shadow are charming, and the windows let in natural light to illuminate the pagoda internal. See the world freely
Myanmar is known as the country of Buddha, the country of ten thousand pagodas, and the largest number of Buddhist temples and pagodas in this city. If you have seen so many pagodas, which one is the most impressive, I must say that it is the Damayangji Pagoda. It also has an alias "Pagoda of Doom". Even it is actually a semi-finished product, and even the top of the tower is not completed. . However, it was such a pagoda without magnificent decoration, a full brick pagoda, which gave me a deep shock. Damayangji Pagoda is the largest pagoda in the Bagan pagoda group, and it is also an outstanding representative of brick pagoda architecture. This red-bricked temple can be seen from all directions in Bagan. Without the top of the tower, it looks like a pyramid from a distance, so it is also called the "Pyramid" of Bagan. No matter from which point of view, the whole brick tower is very heavy. Compared with other temples, it does not have any gilded decoration, and it looks more vicissitudes. Touching every brick, it seems that you can hear the echo of history. This Damayangji Stupa is also the best place to take retro portraits. Standing in the middle of the tall corridor, looking back, there is a feeling of walking out of the painting. Legend: The history of Dammayangji Stupa is said to be a cruel tower. The builder, King Narathu (the 45th king of the Bagan Dynasty 1167-1170), was extremely cruel. Dama Yangji was also built for the crime of killing his father Alaungsithu and his brother Min-Shin-Saw. The requirements for the construction of the pagoda are extremely stringent. If the bricks are slightly tight, the craftsman’s fingers will be cut off, so the torture instruments of the time are still placed in the pagoda. As a result, in 1170, the king was assassinated before the tower was completed. After that, construction was suspended, and the top of the tower has not been repaired. The tour guide also said that it is best to enter this tower at noon when the sun is full, because this tower is actually too many souls and an unfinished mission of atonement. ❤There are various rumors about this pagoda. So far, it has not undergone large-scale repairs. After the 1975 earthquake, it is one of the few large pagodas in the Bagan area unscathed, with a history of nearly 900 years. Still standing firmly on the plains of Bagan. Perhaps the monarch who built him was a cruel monarch, but history or rumors will eventually disappear with the years. The merits and demerits have their own comments, and the picturesque scenery in front of us, peace and tranquility are the best great merits. Travel guide information: Tickets are included in the Bagan Attractions Pass, which costs 20 USD and can be purchased when entering Bagan City.
It is also known as the "Pagoda of Doom". Despite this, although there is no prominent Buddha in the pagoda, the cloister is charming. The pagoda was built by Narathu, the 45th king of the Bagan dynasty, in 1170. The arch of Damayanki Temple has a unique shape. The light and shadow in the corridor shine through the pagoda door into the interior of the pagoda, like a space-time tunnel.
