Dahmmayan Gyi Phaya Reviews & Ratings

  • The biggest temple in Bagan with interesting story. King Narathu built the temple for his sin of killing his father and brother. It is a picturesque place in Bagan and there is a puppet shop with many puppets hanging on the tree. It's also a good place to take pictures.

  • One of the beautiful but said to be the tallest of the archaeological set of Buddhist Pagoda in Bagan. The renovation work is in progress. The entire building of the Pagoda could be captured only on climbing an elevated mound at the Fringe of the complex.the best age can be obtained at the dawn when the Sun rays are not in higher degree !

  • You should go to there because this temple is very beautiful view when sunset time

  • One of the most iconic and largest Buddha temple in Bagan, it built since year 1167.

  • Beautiful temple with an entrance for two Buddha. People in myanmar believe this temple is bad luck. The king who build this unfinished temple killed his father and brother. The king then killed his wife and the architects of the temple because the fall in love. That is why the temple is unfinished (no umbrella at the top). Ask a local for the whole story. ;)
