"Climbing up to the 7-story pagoda altar, the entire Bagan scenery has a panoramic view, whether it is to watch the sunrise or sunset, it is an excellent place. The Ta Bingyu Pagoda, built in 1144, is located in the middle of the Bagan Pagoda Group. It is more than 60 meters high and is the tallest pagoda in Bagan. Very beautiful and spectacular!"

"Ruiguyi Pagoda Temple is a Buddhism building in the middle of Bagan. It was built during the reign of King Alon Siddu in 1140. Ruiguyi means "golden cave". Because it is close to the ancient palace, it is called the palace stupa. The tower is built on a 3.6-meter-high brick foundation. Legend has it that this is the king’s good fortune that caused a huge brick to emerge from the ground. According to historical records, the king was driven out of the palace by his son when he was old and moved to the pagoda monastery, and was later killed. There are still four Buddha statues and two inscriptions in the temple. Climb to the viewing platform of the Pagoda Temple to see the nearby Pagoda Temples."

"This should be the tallest building in Bagan. You can watch the sunrise and sunset here. But generally everyone will go to the pagoda to watch the sunset, and there will be hot air balloons when the weather is good. But now the local government doesn't do much to climb the pagoda for fear of damage."

"The door opened at 9:30 in the morning. Because I arrived too early, I had to go to the pagoda opposite to the entrance. Unexpectedly, I found an unexpectedly beautiful spot. I climbed up to the second floor of the pagoda. You can see multiple pagodas in the distance. It is a good place to take pictures. . The architectural space in the museum is tall and magnificent, but the collection is not as large as expected. There are some sculptures and photography works of bagan, and architectural models of the ancient kingdom on the first floor. On the second floor, there is a collection of many sculptures of Buddha. You can enjoy many Buddha statues and various images at once. What's interesting is that I don't know if I entered the venue too early, the lights in the hall were too late to turn on, and the exhibition room was dark, and I had to turn on the lights of my mobile phone to see the works clearly. The toilets are also not located in the same building in the museum, and can only be found after leaving the building."

"The Mojoti Temple (Mahabodhi Paya) was built by King Dilominro in 1215 with a distinct Indian style and is unique among the many pagodas in the Bagan region and impressive. The Mohanti temple is built in the same way as the most famous Mohti Buddha Tower in Bodhigaya, India. Bodhigaya is said to be the land of enlightenment and the most famous Buddhist shrine in India. The pagodas have seven layers, representing the Buddha's passage of the road in seven, seventy-four days. According to legend, Sakyamuni traveled to Bodhigaya, and spent six years in the nearby forest, making him shrivel and exhausted, but still unable to understand the way of liberation. So he gave up his penance, bathed in the Nilian Chan River, washed away all his dirt, and then climbed a tree to the bank, and drank the milk of the shepherdess, and came to Bodhigaya, and meditated under a large Bodhi tree, and vowed that if he could not fully realize his dream, he would never be able to afford it. He thus languished for seventy-nine days, and on the last morning he looked up and saw a bright star in the east. In this moment, Sakyamuni suddenly understand the universe of life, understand the true meaning of life, but also free from the suffering of old and sick."

"Tharabha Gate (Tharabha Gate) is the only one of the twelve gates in Bagan that has survived. The builder of Taraba Gate began with Kunhsaw Kyaunghpyu (Kunhsaw Kyaunghpyu), who regained the throne from the usurper Nyaung-u Sawrahan (Nyaung-u Sawrahan) and snatched the three queens of Liang U Sawrahan as his wife. However, the Queen of Nangong and the Queen of Zhonggong are pregnant with Kyiso and Sokkate, sons of Liangwu Suluohan, and they have become the adopted children of Gongcuo Jiang Piao; while the Queen of Beigong and Gongcuo Jiang Piao Anuluta was born. When the two brothers Kisot and Sou Gede grew up, they staged a coup to dethrone the Gongcuo Jiang Piao. Kisseau took the throne and completed the construction of Bagan including the Talaba Gate. He soon died in a hunting accident. Countless materials for Burmese folk tales). Kisot’s successor is his half-brother Sogede. This satyr took aim at the widow of his biological father, Wu Su Luohan, and stepfather’s palace, Jiang Piao, and his righteous brother Anuruta. 'S mother... it's a mess to look at this royal relationship! Sou Gede's fantasies eventually caused himself to die in the hands of Anuluta."

"In Old Bagan, next to the bridge is the wooden bridge. Walking on the side of the bridge to visit is like visiting cultural relics. It is not very big, but it is too sunny during the Spring Festival. We watched for five minutes and left."

"At the main entrance of the temple, you can see the complete Dabiniu Temple, and the angle is very beautiful, it is a good place to take pictures. Literally, "Nathlaung Kyaung" means "shrine of imprisoned elves". The layout of the temple is like a traditional Indian grotto, with a large column in the middle and frescoes or carvings on all sides. The carvings in the temple are all plaster carvings, so the craftsmanship is exquisite, and the carvings of Vishnu are very beautiful. In addition to plaster carvings, there are also a few murals on the walls."

"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."

"Limina Temple is indeed a relatively off-site location. It is usually a very quiet place with sporadic tourists who ride on their own small motorcycles. The white tower also looks very pure. On the wall next to it, it was the only one we found to go up the stairs. It was not easy to watch the sunrise from a higher point."

"【Destination Guide】 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."
