This temple is the same name as the Ananda temple. Be careful not to be confused. The two temples are very close and walk for a few minutes. There are beautiful frescos in the temple, if you have time, you can come and see it.
Do not confuse it with the temple of the same name, which is a small brick church or monastery just a two-minute walk from the hotel. It was damaged in the August 2016 earthquake. They told us that it contained some murals, but we only saw it outside.
Currently, the temple is undergoing a lot of repair work, so it is worth waiting for the repair work to be completed before visiting, unless you don’t mind scaffolding work here and there. The temple is famous in Bagan because of its unique shape (compared to other Bagan temples), and also because of the exquisite murals inside (currently undergoing restoration work). However, if you want to visit Ananda Temple (different from this temple...the beautiful Ananda Temple is called Ananda Paye by the locals, and this Ananda Okjong-pronounced Okjong , They will say "k" is like "j" Myanmar), then you can swing here because they are next to each other. In addition, the area also has delicious Golden Myanmar 2 restaurants and restaurants that treat the moon and animal vegetables well.
Built in 1775, it is a representative work of the late decline of Myanmar traditional art and the rebirth of architecture. There are splendid frescoes in the temple, depicting life in the 18th century in nuance, and some depict Portuguese merchants.
