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.
