There's a little sand painting artist who offered the tourists for temporary painting on our arm or hand. It looks very classic and no need to pay.

Loved the stone carvings, which are only visible from the entrance side and best with a torch. There were loads of tourists inside the small temple when I visited, so it is best to wait for a few minutes to get a clear view which is well worthwhile.

Taken there by tour guide. This pagoda is next to Manuha temple and good for a short visit. It has some Buddhist wall paintings but more Hindu design (central open space, kind of like at Angkor Wat in Cambodia), and interesting carving on side of building. Worth a short visit.

Some may pass this by but it has the finest stone carvings in Bagan. It's also right next to the Manuha temple which you will want to see so why not pop next door and take a peek. It was not busy when we visited and is certainly worth about 15-30 minutes of your time

There is so much on offer in Bagan and New Bagan that you might be tempted to leave this temple off your list, but if you have time there are some wonderful, intricate carvings to see. When we visited metal supports had been placed inside following the August earthquake, but this did not detract from the atmosphere. The craftsmanship is... More

Another excellent temple with intricate stone carvings. the temple was the home to the captured Mon King Manuha. The carvings have influences of many other cultures and are really interesting to look at

Another temple but personally feel there are more interesting sites to see. We understand the history behind the temple but wish we had known how cramped it was in advance. Our pictures were limited in this temple and feel we could have spent time in other areas rather than this one

Dating back to the 10th c., this temple is unusual: it's the only one made of sandstone, it's plan is a simple quadrangle, it mixes Hindu gods with Buddhism reflecting the transition between both religions. Added bonus, it's a bit out of the main tourist tracks and thus less crowded.

This is one of the smaller of the more important temples in Bagan, located a short distance back from the main road near the Manuha temple. Photos inside are discouraged.
