Thank you!
The Ananda Temple is a Buddhist temple built during the reign (1084–1113) of King Kyanzittha of the Pagan Dynasty. It is one of four surviving temples in Bagan. The temple layout is in a cruciform with several terraces leading to a small pagoda at the top covered by an umbrella known as hti, which is the name of the umbrella or top ornament found in almost all pagodas in Myanmar. The Buddhist temple houses four standing Buddhas, each one facing the cardinal direction of East, North, West and South. The temple is said to be an architectural wonder in a fusion of Mon and adopted Indian style of architecture. The impressive temple has also been titled the "Westminster Abbey of Burma". The temple is also known as “veritable museum of stones”

  • 1456789 1456789 Hola Sanda, parece increible que se mantenga en pié un templo de más de 1000 años. Me ha encantado Buda con una capa o algo parecido, nunca le había visto representado así. Las pinturas son las que no se han conservado pero desgraciadamente, es así. Fantástico templo y fantástica presentación, muchas gracias, Pilar 3 months ago
