"Like most major pagodas, the mown lawns outside are a bit unusual, and it was built in the 11th century. It is amazing to think how many excellent buildings with more than 1,000 years of history are still intact in such a small location. Earthquakes and other actions spoil more facts and make you wonder what it would look like if it had so many pagodas already huge"

"There are some stalls selling things and some vendors selling snacks in front of the stairs of the golden pagoda. The golden pagoda is not very big, but the sunset is very beautiful on the golden pagoda. This is also a good place to watch the sunset. The setting sun shines on the river and the boats used to carry people to the opposite bank give it a special taste. There are also some food stalls nearby, but we did not try."

"The Rigoji Fota is a small but elegant temple built in 1131, with a veranda that is easy to light and airflow from the entrance and entrance, carved and carved pillars. It is a model of the mid-term building of Lugan. There are two-story platforms. It is an officially recognized stupa that can be climbed. It is very safe and has a wide view. Although there is no absolute height, you can see the nearby ice yoga tower, which is white as jade. It is especially beautiful at dusk. 🧚🧚🧚‼️‼️‼️"

"The 60-meter-high Gadparin Temple is one of the most majestic temples in Kagan, whose name is originally intended to be "the platform to express reverence". The temple was built during the reign of the Napadi Hu, and was completed during the reign of the King of Nadong Miya, and is considered to be the most brilliant achievement of the late Kagan period."

"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 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."

"The sun had begun to set, and we rushed to one of the higher pagodas in the area, – Shwesandaw Tower. The tower was magnificent and looked out over the Gansu Plain and was visible from now on, and was also popular with tourists at sunset. We checked the tickets to the archaeological area here. Climb steep stairs to the top of Shwesandaw Temple and be careful to watch one of the most popular sunsets in Gansu."

"Mingalazedi is the last and largest temple in Bagan. It was built during the fall of Bagan, and it was the last magnificent temple built before the Mongolian invasion. It has been closed since 2012. You can only see it from a distance. You can't even walk around. It is worth staying for a few minutes. The structure is impressive and history is very important."

"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."

"Niangwu came out of the rectangular temple on the right hand side. It is recommended to rent an ebike or a bicycle. It is free to stop and go. The location is diagonally opposite to the Xiluomingde Temple. It is not a small temple. This place is marked on the simplified map provided by the hotel."
