Another temple which is a little more difficult to reach, this one has also been the victim of some recent earthquake damage. Probably looked quite impressive without the tarpaulin covering the top.

This is a nice temple with reasonably visible original art on the walls inside. It is not a must-see, but it is certainly worth the time to visit.

Tip: Star Beam is an excellent restaurant (check my review and pics) conveniently located in Old Bagan. Delicious Burmese food (and it also has some European food)! Don't miss the warm bread! Not too special (just average) but you can be the only tourist there...More
