Gubyaukgyi Temple Reviews & Ratings
With the finest murals in the inner corridor ,u might need a good torch to see them. 1113 AD
I do not doubt this temple has a greatest paint structure with its interior walls covered with ancients culture of Art . It is one of the great temple and beautiful one.Must Visit and take photo in the evening time at the outside view and you are not allowed taking photo inside.
Built in 1113 by Kyanzittha's son Yazakumar, on his father's death. Well-preserved murals of Jatakas in early Bagan period on its interior walls. The Myazedi pagoda is nearby, there house the Myazedi inscription stone inscribed in four languages, ancient Pali, Mon, old Burmese and Pyu telling the story of Prince Yazakumar and King Kyansittha. Myin Kabar GuByaukGyi temple was constructed in Mon style with Hindu influence, that was typical of early Bagan period
Don’t miss the wall paintings inside the temple! You will need to use your own light to see them but they are amazing and that experience of using your flash light to look at paintings is nice too.
This, and the Mahabodhi temple, resemble closely the one in Bodh Gaya, Bihar, India. This temple, hence, stands out conspicuously from the others in this region in spite of its modest size as compared to the other behemoths. There are many murals in the interior of this temple depicting Jataka tales, but most have faded. They also appear to have been a victim of vandalism. Nevertheless the serene beauty of this place is unmatched.
