A truly magical place and it’s not an exaggeration! If you want to know how picture perfect Bagan is, then visiting Pya-Tha-Da Paya or Pyathagyi Hpaya is a must. The view of setting sun is quite ethereal from here and you’ll fall in love with the tranquillity of nature, all over again, once you pay a visit here. If you’re an avid photographer or an amateur who just knows to click pictures from the phone, you’ll love the locales this place has to offer.

Pyathadar Hpaya Reviews & Ratings
You can no longer go up the internal stairs to view the sunset from the terraces. Was very disappointed when I arrived due to this reason. At the entrance to the carpark, there is a blue sign indicating another viewpoint 600m ahead. We went there to enjoy the sunset and temple spires could be seen on the horizon. The viewpoint was not crowded.
Bagan in Burma is a wonderful and amazing place with thousands of stupas and temples. Pyathetgyi Pagoda is a much sought place for watching the sunset. It gathers hundreds of tourists every night.
Must see. I would give it 6 stars if I could. I've been to many Buddhist temples from Cambodia, Java, Thailand and Vietnam but this is by far the most ornate. Start from the North to see the original statue from when the temple was built. Note the Indian features on the Buddha and the face changes from different distances. Then go around and see the Buddha face change with Burmese (squarish) and later Chinese (sharpish, small eyes) features. Our guide, Ya Ye Ye was phenomenal for the nominal fees we paid.
Hightly recommend to go and visit there.
