Ananda Temple, Bagan Reviews

  • 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.

  • A really wonderful area. Great morning photography opportunities all round with lots of depth and atmosphere. Some real hidden gems for photos if your willing to spend your time looking

  • Most beautiful Temple in Bagan. Incredible Architecture and Beautiful Shape, built in 11 AD

  • Pretty Pagoda. Being managed and repaired with the Indian government. There’s a turtle pond there from where you can see the reflection of the whole Pagoda.

  • The most Beautiful temple in Bagan. It is one of four surviving temples in Bagan.
