Top 3 Pagodas have to Seen in Bagan myanmar

Bagan, myanmar has over 2,200 stupas and pagodas. It may bring you several days to discover them all. Here is top three most important pagodas that you should never miss when visiting Bagan - the UNESCO Cultural World Heritage place.

Ananda Temple

This is the Bagan's holiest temple, built by the third king, Kyan-zit-tha in 1091. Ananda comes from the Pali word "anantapannya", which means "boundless wisdom". The temple houses four Buddhas facing the cardinal directions, which express the four Buddhas who own attained Nirvana. The fifth, Maitreya, is yet to appear. This is the most important temple in all out of thousand stupas in Bagan.
Location: Left side on the southern stretch of the Bagan-Nyaung Oo Rd. Just prior the street heads to Tharaba Gate of ancient Bagan.


Shwesandaw Temple

This is the "sunset temple", because you will stay here to landscape the spectacular Bagan sunset. This surely overture the best chance for photography. You will encounter tremendous other foreign adventurer as well as local Burmese gather here for most remarkable moment of the day. You should get here early to climb up to the top levels and keeps a considerate place. The top levels are small and space is scarce. The climb up is a reasonably easy 5 minute walk up a flight of stairs, but the steps get narrower and steeper near the top. Not recommended for those with vertigo, but if you could make the climb, you will be rewarded with a breathtaking sunset as the temples and spectacle are set ablaze in golden sunrays. A amazing compromise is to climb to the 3rd or 2nd highest level, where the steps are much more manageable than the topmost level, is less crowded, and the scenery is just as great. It starts getting crowded here as early as 4:30pm, so if you be able to not make it as early as said, consider taking a sight from the Shwe-Gu-Gyi temple nearby instead (easily passable if on bike).

Shwezigon Temple

This gourd-stupaed golden pagoda is the original and prototype monument (including for the iconic Shwedagon Pagoda of Yangon) built in burma style in 1087. Appareantly, it is rather alike to Shwedagon pagoda, but its history and story ara always attract traveler to visit. Careful on the stall vendors, they are the pros employing hard sell psycho tactics.
Location: Heading south, right side on the northern stretch of the Bagan-Nyaung Rd. After passing the bus station. A long covered walkway with souvenir stalls starts from the street to the compound.
