We visited the Atwin Zigon Pagoda in December and it’s our highlight of our Bagan trip. The pogodar was remarked by 2 wooden stautues of two nat-spirit brothers that was told in many historical stories of Bagan. The double pogoda was a very important site of history and culture. If you love exploring more about that, it’s your best choice.
