Most beautiful design ancient pagoda in Bagan. Many tourist and local traveler visit every day.
Amazing Temple. One not to miss when in Bagan. Good prices from the vendors down stairs as well, compared to other parts in the city.
Ananda Temple was build by King Kyanzittha since 1105 AD. It's a full of art in whole temple. it's a good place to imagine that about ancient peoples. you can see a lot of stone craft , ancient painting arts. It's a place that i want to live for a week or a month again.
When I come in the building of the pagoda, So amazing big Buddha Standing Statue was built as watching me.I admire the king who built this pagoda.
Amazing old but well preserved and restored Pagoda. Careful not to trip over people who start praying in the hallway. And if you like you can (but don't have to) but gold leave to put on the Buddha statue for good luck. Salespeople are friendly and not intrusive. The walls are so thick it is very cool inside and your phone won't work :) the 4 main Buddha statues are always in light due to cleverly placed light holes in the walls.
