    Sulamani Pagoda meaning "Crowning Jewel", was built in 1181 by King Narapati Sithu, who reigned from 1174 to 1211.Combining the horizontal planes of the Early period with the vertical lines of the Middle, the temple features two storeys standing on broad terraces assembled to create a pyramid effect. The brickwork throughout is considered some of the best in Bagan.Carved stucco on mouldings, pediments and pilasters represents some of Bagan's finest ornamental work and is in fairly good condition. Glazed plaques around the base and terraces are also still visible.

    Llamado también "Pequeño Rubí" es una de las grandes obras de Bagan hecha durante la época de esplendor
    Hay que destacar sus Budas y frescos aunque a estos no acceso siempre

    Also called "Small Rubi", it is one of the most important temple made during the days of splendor
    You must pay atention on its Buddhas and frescoes though to this you don´t have acces always

    This pahto looks very similar to htilominlo. Sulamani is famous for its well preserved beautiful murals.
