What travelers say:

Nan Hpaya Temple (Nan Hpaya Temple) is located in Bagan’s Myinkaba Village (Myinkaba Village). It was built by the Mon king Manuha, who directly connected to the kingdom. It is a Hindu temple and is adjacent to Manuha Temple. "Ya" literally means "Royal Palace Temple". The Nambaja Temple was built using mud, mortar, stones and bricks. It was once the residence of Manuha. There are exquisite carvings on Brahma and other Hindu gods in the temple. "Hamsa" (like a swan bird) is a unique image and symbol of the Mon nationality, and its status is equal to the Chinese "dragon". It is said that after this temple was built, no one repaired it and left it abandoned, because it is an Indian temple and most of the Burmese people are Buddhists. The carvings in the temple are very exquisite and they are still well maintained after many years. In addition, unlike other brick Buddhist temples, this temple is also a rare stone building in Bagan.
