Ananda Temple Reviews & Ratings
A truly majestic and divine temple of Buddha. The Archaeological Survey of India has done a splendid job of restoration after the temple was damaged by earthquake. The chemical restoration process has brought back the pristine brilliance of this sprawling structure. There are many bells around the complex that one can sound. A totally fulfilling visit.
One of the historical places to visit in Bagan. Very big template with very rich wall painting and stuffs. But prepare to go early since they close at 8pm.
A very beautiful pagoda of 1000 years ago where can see ancient painting and handicrafts
Well known temple of Bagan, very calming. The entrance is not very interesting though but you will find it beautiful inside. Nice architecture. There is a huge standing statue of Budhdha. There is no entry tickets required. At the netract you have to cross several small souvenir shops which mail sell traditional items.
Every visitor to Bagan should not miss to visit and learn its history.
