Thatbyinnyu Phaya

Old Bagan, Myanmar (Burma)

Buddhist Temple

Thatbyinnyu  Phaya was one of King Sithu I's finest legacies to the Bagan region. Although there are no contemporary inscriptions that identify him as the builder, reliable chronicles from the 14th century affirm his role in its construction. It is Bagan's tallest temple at almost 200 ft and represents a transition from the Mon period to a new architectural style. It was one of the famous temples in this area.
