Create an itinerary including Htilominlo Pahto
Marking a spot where its founder was chosen to be the successor of the Pagan dynasty throne, Htilominlo Pahto attracts visitors with its lavish stucco decoration. King Htilominlo--who was more interested in practicing Buddhism and studies than in leading the country--built this 46 m (150 ft) tall red-brick temple at the beginning of the 13th century. Notice the elaborate exterior carvings that depict mythological female monsters and hybrid creatures. The interior retains some faded frescos and four gilded statues of the Buddha. The temple is surrounded by souvenir stalls. Make your Bagan itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • The view is superbly great. Should visit...
  • This is the temple to visit if you want to also take home some souvenirs from Myanmar. The entire perimeter of the temple is lined with vendors selling lacquerware, paintings, books, clothes: you name it! Lovely temple to visit with beautiful golden Buddha statues on display
