    This temple was built in 1218 by King Nantanungmya, after he was chosen in this spot amongst five brothers to be crowned prince. The temple contains some beautiful carvings, some murals and four big golden Buddha statues.

    This rather magnificent building, one of the larger ones in Bagan was built between 1211-1230 by King Nandaungmyar to commemorate his choosing as one of five sons to be Crown Prince. This was achieved by the rather curious means that an umbrella tilted towards him rather than any of his siblings.

    The temple is comprised of three stories and rises to a height of about 150 feet and has a base of 140 feet on each side. There are four large Buddha images inside aligned to compass points, and there are also some frescoes on the walls.

    A word of warning, though. I found the vendors here to be amongst the more persistent anywhere in Bagan.

    Like it's close neighbour Uplai Thein (see seperate tip) the temple suffered damage in the earthquake of 1975, although this has now been repaired.

    Se hizo aqui este templo pues fue donde echaron a suertes 5 hermanos para ver quien iba a ser rey y al rey que se le inclinó el parasol blanco fue el que construlló el templo

    It was built on this place because here the five sons of the king played to see who was the king, and the king to who the white umbrella leaned built the temple
