Set high on a cliff overlooking the Ayerwadi river, this temple dates from the 11th century. It holds a relic of the Buddha's tooth. From the marble-tiled terrace there is a wonderful view over Bagan. When we visited the toilets were in a disgusting condition

Technically, this is a stupa not a pagoda, because you can't enter it--it is a kind of "tomb." But it is the largest and richest, and most spectacular vision of gold I have seen anywhere in Southeast Asia

The temple was constructed where the relics of Buddha arrived. It could have been a port city during early periods. Location is beautiful and we waited for sunset and it was great

It was the farthest destination by my bicycle, but it was worth to visit! I could have the beautiful sunset and great river view. It felt less touristy and more local.

A mostly local crowd here. Excellent views of the river and beyond. Not a lot of shade so perhaps better to visit earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon.
