Thatbyinnyu Temple, Bagan Reviews

  • No doubt by now you've read that this is the tallest pagoda in Bagan, which isn't saying too much since none of them are super tall by today's standards - but when you remember the time period it was constructed, it does make you appreciate it more.

  • 11th Century Nathlaung Kyaung Hindu Temple in Bagan, Myanmar (Burma) 😍 Dedicated to Sree Hari Vishnu 🙏 Nathlaung Kyaung Temple is to the west of the Thatbyinnyu Temple, and it is the only remaining Hindu temple in Bagan. Nat-Hlaung Kyaung temple is one of the oldest temples in Bagan, and was built in the 11th century, during the reign of King Anawratha. Some historians believe the temple was built in the 10th century, during the reign of King Nyaung-u Sawrahan (also known as Taungthugyi). The temple was originally built for Hindu Burmese Indians of the 11th century, including merchants and Brahmins in the service of the king. Many structures of the original temple have disappeared, although the main hall remains. Originally, the temple contained statues of the 10 Avatars of Vishnu, including Gautama Buddha; however, today, only seven remain. The brick temple was isolated and unrepaired for many years, damaged by earthquakes.

  • It's quite massive but has not much to offer inside. The usual Buddha sculptures and some remains of wall paintings.

  • Tallest pagoda. 12th century.
