History and Background
Why should visit
Among the famous temples in Myanmar, Thatbinnyu is the tallest structure and a must visit place in Bagan. It towers above all the nearby temples and can be seen clearly while riding a hot air balloon or from the viewing tower. This was one of the first 2-storey pagodas of Bagan. The temple has a square base on which the first and the second storey stands. The top of both the storeys has three receding terraces. Each terrace has a small stupa on each of its 4 corners. Its architectures and structure reflect the old history of the Burma People and their culture.
The best time to visit is in the morning or an hour before the sunset to get magnificent view of Bagan Beautifully.
