Thank you!
From the 9th to 13th centuries, Bagan was the capital of the Kingdom of Pagan, the first kingdom to unify the regions that would later constitute modern Myanmar. During the kingdom's height between the 11th and 13th centuries, over 10,000 Buddhist temples, pagodas and monasteries were constructed in the Bagan plains alone, of which the remains of over 2200 temples and pagodas still survive to the present day.

Transcript of "Bagan Upali Thein ordination hall "

  1. 1. http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/michaelasanda-2046085-myanmar16-bagan/
  2. 2. The Upali Thein (Sima) is a small building lying along the main Nyaug Oo - Old Bagan road, which could easily be overlooked. Upali Thein, close the Htilominlo Temple, on the other side of the road, is a good example of a sima or ordination hall. It is rectangular with a vaulted hall and an image of the Buddha at the west
  3. 3. The Sima was erected during the reign of King Kyazwa, who reigned between 1234-1250, and was known as a philosopher King. The Glass Palace Chronicle has this to say of the good King (translation adapted from that by Pe Maung Tin): He had compassion on all the people, both laymen and monks, as though they were children of his bosom. He read the Three Pitakas nine times over. He pondered often on divers interpretations of the Pali, commentaries and subcommentaries; in the discussion of questions there was none to equal him. Seven times a day he studied with the noble Order.
  4. 4. The Sima was renovated during the reign of the Konbaung Dynasty in the late 18th century, which is when the mural paintings date from. They contain scenes of the Going-Forth of many of the previous Buddhas; other famous scenes from the Life of the Buddha, like his son's GoingForth and Ajita's confirmation as the coming Metteyya Buddha; the Rains' retreats; and the consecration of the Sima.
