had a great time in this Temple. Looks Magical from a Far and more mystical when you reach it. Got to tour inside the temple and had the chance to talk with a very young boy who's telling us about this temple's history.

One of the landmarks in Bagan's plain, not to be missed. Vendors are gentle, more than the average. Be careful on the sandy road.
