    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The only Hindu remaining temple in Bagan, and dedicated to Vishnu. It´s said it was built in 931 by King Taunghthugyi (before the Buddhism came to Bagan). It was used by King Anawratha to store non Buddhist images in the city, particularly the stautes of the local nats. Few things remain from the original temple, once it contains some standing figures of Vishnu but were stolen by the germans. Inside the main altar ther are some stucco reliefs of Vishnu.
