It is a really big temple. King Narathu started this temple to assuage his sins (he killed his own father and brother to become king). there is an entrance fee.

This is a huge & very impressive pile of bricks. This temple was never finished - perhaps a lesson to the folly of many. But there is still plenty to see. Almost pyramid shape, and different to many of the other pagodas you'll see. Busy...More

This was built by the 12th century King Narathu (probably as atonement for assassinating his own family members). If he had completed it, it could well have become the greatest monument in Bagan. But he himself was assassinated (revenge-killing) before he could complete it. It...More

I would recommend visiting this temple, as it's a significant one (built mid 12th century), and beautiful from the outside. The inside also looked lovely, but I was unable to proceed to the innermost sanctum as the smell from bats and rats was so appalling....More

This wasn't my favorite temple in Bagan, but well worth visiting. This is probably one of the quietest temples in all of Bagan and has lots of great history.

The temple was neatly built around 1163 and stood as one of the largest temple in Bagan area. Entrance fee for temple & stupa in old Bagan cost 25,000 Kyatt and worth every Kyatt you pay. The architect tells the prosperity of the old days...More

It may be the largest temple in Bagan but there is not a lot to see inside and it did not take me long to look around the outside of the temple although there is some good architecture. The view from the front is the...More

Its sheer size takes you by awe. Its grand and looks like a true tribute to Gods by Humans. The engineering looks marvellous and represent the grandeur of bagan in all its glory. No visit to bagan is complete without a visit to Dhammayangi Temple.
