One of my highlights in Bagan. The Golden Stupa in combination with the red top inside a garden like area makes it special. As a plus it's off the beaten track so you have no worries of crowds of tourists.

Set in a pleasant surrounding garden-like environment, what makes this particular pagoda unique is that it is five sided (instead of the usual for). This was done to accommodate the anticipated arrival of the fifth Buddha. Is currently undergoing significant restoration, so for safety reasons, access is limited to its garden surrounds and the front terrace.

Was told that the pagoda behind it is good for sunset by our horse cart driver, and he was right! I like the sunset there more than the one from the tallest temple in Bagan

Another lovely temple but follow the dirt track round to the right and there are a number of smaller sites with hidden stairs giving great views. Dhammayazika is one of a number of great, quieter temples on the southern plain, all of which are worth a day travelling around

Cool temple, currently has bamboo scaffolding around the stupa. There is a monastery behind where you can climb up to watch the sunset. Nearby temples are cool looking with different tops.

Inside there are beautiful wall paintings and outside is just as stunning to look at. Well worth a visit.

This is a must-see Pagoda, be it in the morning or evening during sunset. The Pagoda is breathtakingly beautiful, with jataka tale murals adorning its sides. It is a photographer's delight, as my pics will reveal.

I would recommend going here during the sunset. When the sun shines on the Pagoda it is very beautiful. We did not enter inside as it was closed for renovations due to the recent earthquake.

I think this is my favourite of all the pagodas in Bagan. Plenty of space for walking around and well maintained, plus not much evidence of obvious damage from the recent earthquake. There's a dirt road connecting this with Dhammayayangyi, which is a much more pleasant route on an e-bike than going along the main road and facing the traffic.

Mainly in the Burmese culture, pagodas and temples have 4 main entrances representing the four enlightened Buddhas : Kakusandha, Konagamana, Kassapa, and Gautama. But another one remains to be enlightened and know as Maitreya. So there are 6 pagodas in Bagan which has 5 entrances representing all the 5 Buddhas and one of these Pagodas is the Dhammayazika Pagoda.

Thank Chris K
