Thank you!
At the southern end of Myinkaba village is the Manuha Temple complex. When in 1057 King Anawrahta returned victorious to Bagan, it was here that the captive King Manuha was brought to live. By 1059 Manuha had built himself this two-story square white temple and through it conveyed a melancholy message. The three Buddha images are uncomfortably large for their enclosure, thus illustrating his captivity and mental stress. The facial expressions of the seated images are grim. That of the one reclining Buddha, on the other hand, is smiling and serene. He faces north and is therefore on the verge of Nirvana and release from the transitory world.
Nanpaya means Kings Temple and there are several unusual elements in the composition of this 1059 built structure. Each pillar of the interior is decorated on four sides with reliefs of a three headed Brahma. These reliefs are characterized by soft modeling of plastic forms, beauty of the lines and grace of movement.

    Gracias Pilar, un abrazo.
    Myanmar is one of the poorest countries in East Asia, with an estimated GDP per capita of between $800-$1,000 and a poverty headcount of 26 percent. Most social indicators are very low. For example, 32 percent of children under five suffer from malnutrition.
    Myanmar is embarking on a triple transition – from an authoritarian military system to democratic governance, from a centrally directed economy to a market-oriented economy, and from 60 years of conflict to peace in its border areas. These transitions have the potential to create opportunity and shared prosperity for the people of Myanmar and for the country to resume its place as one of the most dynamic economies in Asia.

  • 1456789 1456789 Que templo mas fantástico el de Manuha, con un poco de pintura blanca se solucionaba, el interior es impresionante, lo peor es el poco espacio que tienen los Budas. Sin embargo Nanpaya no me gusta demasiado. Espléndida presentación querida Michaella. Gracias, Pilar 3 months ago
