Ananda Temple, Bagan Reviews

  • I'm going to go against the majority here and say that although this one is well-preserved, it's not actually the "best" temple in Bagan. Yes, the large wooden doors and standing Buddha statues are neat, and the red, white, and gold mix of colors on the outside is visually pleasing, but for me personally, I just didn't get the "awestruck" moment that I get at a few others. With over 2,000 temples from which to choose, everyone can find the one that's right for them!

  • This is one of the best place and must visit in your life! I think the people in Bagan is super friendly, they love to help, honest and feel peaceful. I met many people in different temple, and I chat with many child, they even feel so tired after asking money, I really l want to help them with some move. I recommend everyone come here, just take the scooter and hang around, even the small temple is beautiful, no need go to big one because it is so crowded, but you can visit of course. I recommend everyone come here! you feel the life is amazing.

  • Absolutely a must. Unique from outside with distinctive shining top and unusual indoor with massive 4 Buddha sculptures and dozens of others placed in neat niches. Fantastic light inside for photographers. My favorite in Bagan.

  • Inside and around Ananda Temple: The Westminster Abbey of Myanmar. The Buddhist temple houses four standing Buddhas, each one facing the cardinal direction of East, North, West and South. This is a very old temple. You can walk one round inside the temple. Along the walkway you can see many Windows.. of which most of them have a Buddha's statue inside. You have to walk around the temple too as the architecture of this temple is also very beautiful. Unlike the other temples.. This one is fairly white in colour rather than the earth colour. This is a must go temple. You should miss this one. The compound outside is also very big.

  • it's really wonderful mega structure of Buddhism temple in Bagan, the fascinating of gigantic Buddha located in each direction was so impressive. this is a wonderful place and worth for visiting.
