Ananda Temple : It is the most famous of the Bagan’s temples, and is considered the masterpiece of Mon architecture. It was built in 1091 by King Kyansitha. The structure of the Temple is that of a simple corridor temple. Other interesting features of the temple are the numerous glazed terracotta tiles ornamenting the base and the receding terraces which represent the Jataka stories of the Buddha and the hosts of Mara’s army. Each of these plaques is inscribed with a Mon legend. The inner walls are honey-combed with niches in which are set small stone Buddhas in various postures. The most notable among the sculptures is a series of eighty reliefs in the two lower tiers of niches in the outer corridor, illustrating the life of the Bodhisattva from his birth to the attainment of supreme wisdom. The western sanctum also enshrines the life-size statues of its founder, Kyanzittha and the primate, Shin Arahan.

 

Thatbyinnyu Temple : It lies in the centreBagan, half-kilometer away from Ananda. It is also known as the “Temple of Omniscience” and is the tallest building in Bagan , 201 feet high.

It was built by King Alaungsithu in the middle of the 12th century A.D. There are two tires of windows in each story of the Thatbyinnyu, as well as huge arches inlaid with flamboyant pediments making the interior bright and allowing a breeze to flow through. Entering by east porch one is confronted by the stairway guarded by two standing figures of the guardians. At the top was a stupa containing holy relics. The upper story can be reached by climbing interior stairs to the intermediate terraces, then taking an exterior staircase to the cella. Three Square terraces with medial stairways rest on this cubicle.

 

Shwezigon Pagoda : It is one of the most venerated pagodas in Myanmar. King Anawrahta, thinking himself as a “universal monarch”, set about to obtain all possible relics of the Buddha. He got the Buddha’s collar bone and frontal bone from Pyay and an emerald Buddha figure from Yunan of China. All these sacred relics were enshrined in this pagoda. As he died in 1077, King Kyansitha supervised the completion of the structure in 1089. It is a solid sylindrical in style and is a prototype of other similar structures in Myanmar. On each of the four sides of pagoda is small temple which enshrines the standing Buddha of the Gupta style. At the northeast corner of the platform there are 37images of nats or spirits ina shrine hall. Shwezigon Pagoda festival is held annually during the month of November or December in honour of the pagoda.

 

Damayangyi Temple : It is said to be Bagan’s largest shrine. It was built by King Narathu in 1660-65 who was also known as Kalagya Min or the King assassinated by Indians. The finest brickwork is to be seen in this temple because it is said that Narathu oversaw the construction himself, and he had masons executed if a needle could be pushed between the bricks they had laid. As he was seriously concerned about his future lives after having murdered his father, Narathu built it to atone for his misdeed.

 

Manuha Temple : It was built by the captive King of Thaton in 1059 A.D, situated just south of Myinkaba village. The builder’s grievance is graphically demonstrated by representing one reclining and three seated Buddha images cramped uncomfortably within the narrow confines of the pagoda. It is said to symbolize the distressed soul of the defeated King, and is an example of early jail architecture in Myanmar. Unlike to most Mon-style temple, its upper story is smaller than the lower. It collapsed during 1975 earthquake and was renovated in 1981.grievance is graphically demonstrated by representing one reclining and three seated Buddha images cramped uncomfortably within the narrow confines of the pagoda.

It collapsed during 1975 earthquake and was renovated in 1981.

 

Nanpaya Temple : It is situated close to the Manuha temple. According to tradition, it was used as the residence of the captive Mon king, Manuha. It is built of brick and mud mortar and surfaced with stone, and is square in plan with a porch projection on the east face. Flanking the sanctuary in the main building are four stone pillars on the sides of each of which are carved triangular flora designs and the figures of the Brahma holding lotus flowers in each hand. Like other earlier temples at Pagan it has perforated stone windows to admit light into the building.

 

Shwesandaw Pagoda : One of only three religious structures King Anawrahta built in Bagan, it was constructed in 1057 after his victorious return from Thaton. Its stupa enshrines some of the sacred hairs of Buddha obtained from the King of Bago (Pegu). The pagoda spire collapsed in the 1975 quake and it has already been replaced.

 

Tharabba Gateway : If you enter the ancient city you’ll pass through the main gate on the east wall named Tharabba Gateway. It is the only structure left of the old city built by King Pyibya in the 9th century . Traces of stucco carving on the frieze are visible on the exterior walls. The entrance to it is guarded by two Bagan’s guardians-nats or spirits, called MahagiriNats. These two nats, brother and sister, are namely Maung Tint de (Mr. Handsome) and his sister Shwemyethna (Miss Golden Face0 whose images are deposited in a monastery shrine, the male on the left and the female on the right. They are the most important spirit beings in Myanmar history.
