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.

I went in the low season. So very few visitors, witch was just fine as it gives much better time for exploring at all hours and taking pictures without 1000 selfiesticks being in the way. I explored this temple on my first day. Had no plan, just go out on the e-bike and see what I come across. I later... More

Previously, it was a good place for going up high and watch the city as bird eyes view. But now stairs were closed. Many original art works are visible from ground level. Water drainage pipes were made of stone and curved as birds and animals. In_gin organic stones were demonestrated there.

Maybe my favourite of all the temples in Bagan. I love the colouring, with the red/black bricks contrasted against the gold tips.
