Lemyethna

Nyaung-U, Myanmar (Burma)

Buddhist Temple

Lemyethna Pagoda is located in the eastern part of the Bagan Plain and was built in 1222. It features intricate figure frescoes on its interior walls and ceilings. Based on some of the ruins nearby, the temple was likely originally part of a monastery.  The temple's condition decline over the centuries and frequent whitewashing of the temple damaged some of the original murals.
