Sulamani Guphaya Temple, Bagan Reviews
the place you must to visit in your life I come here for 3 days, I experienced the greatest feeling in my life- you will feel like in the ancient movie, you can see the most beautiful sunrise and sunset on the temple. must rent the electric bike, so you can go everywhere and explore, must buy some wood stuff from local, really beautiful and memorable, I will come back in the future. 你可以騎著電動腳踏車在這個像是一千年以前才有的城市閒晃，你會覺得自己彷彿穿越了時空，真的是太美了。
Sulamani Temple built in 1183, though it went thru damaged twice during earthquake in 1975 & 2016, it still stands beautifully with a lot of wall paintings in its interior believed to be drawn on in the 18th century. Also there is one part of the wall where the paintings clearly from an later period and different artist...small and detailed.. I find it has lots of Chinese influence. This is a must go temple if you want to see something different like the wall paintings. You can see lots of Buddha painting, sitting and sleeping. Also lots of paintings of people offering flowers to the Buddha. There are also paintings of Buddha sitting and surrounded by snakes.
Brickwork, glazed and the mural from 13th to 19th century can be seen. A must go pagoda when you visit Bagan.
Wonderful wall paintings. Pity that the govt is not putting much effort in preserving them.
Great for photos. On the right there is a small hill giving nice view
