Dahmmayan Gyi Phaya, Bagan Reviews

  • Tomb Raider style – Largest temple in Bagan, or so I've heard. It was truly very big and well worth exploring. I did not manage to find any secret passages that some people mentioned of though, but I didn't try that hard.

  • Dhammayan Gyi Temple, build during the 12th century, believed to be the largest temple in Bagan. Inside the temple can see very little wall paintings remains. some I find its like not the old paintings. But it's really big and like a maze.. one can get lost inside. On the four side inside you will see Buddha statues. Behind the statues you find Avery big pillar with walkways around it. Then there is another walkways in front of the Buddha's.. and yet another one .. thus making this temple very big and like a maze... you can lost your directions walking inside this temple. This temple is worth going. You can visit this temple and Sulamani temple together.

  • Dhammayangyi can be seen from various directions, and it is significantly structured and laid with fine bricks. Its design resembles the Ananda pagoda, that is, a square shape, with porches casting out on all four directions.

  • One of many beautiful temples in Bagan. Midday, the ground can get hot so make sure to bring socks for when you have to take off your shoes.

  • made me small. must go place
