Phaya Thonzu 1/undefined by Tripoto

Phaya Thonzu

There are three main temples near the Min Nan Thu village in Bagan. Tayoke Pyaya, Phaya Thonzu and the Nandamanya Temples. All of these are built in the reign of King Anawrahta Theravada in the 13th century. All the three are known for their exquisite mural painting and the elaborate frescoes the adorn the walls of the temples. We then headed to the Kat Kan Cave monastery, a great place to relax and mediate. We also met some locals in the farming villages around Bagan to get an insight into their lives and their culture. An interaction with the locals is a necessity to understand the culture of Myanmar.
