Why Manuha Temple is special ?

This pagoda lies south of Manuha Image. It is one of four Bagan monuments built of sandstones. The other three are Shwezigon, Kyauk Ku Umin and Set Ku Taik (which was a library at the foot of the Tuyin Hill built by King Kya Swa. In 1956 it collapsed due to old age. Only photographic record of it remains).
The architectural structure of Nan Paya Pagoda is unique. The inner walls were built of baked bricks whereas the outer walls were built of sandstones. It was built on the palace site where King Manuha, king of Thaton had resided. It is traditionally said that the king's great grandson Naga Tha-man built Nan Paya Pagoda. The date of its building was guessed either late A. D. 11th century or early A. D. 12th century.

History has it that this temple was built from the proceeds of the jewelry of a captured king. The temple stands out because the huge buddha statues are confined in such small chambers, you will feel claustrophobic if you're the statue!!The temple was built to gain merit by the captured prisoner king. Definitely worth a visit! Good photography opportunities.

Two sitting Buddha and one reclining Buddha are here. Reclining Buddha fits just the size inside.. I mean he has no extra space. It is interesting to see this giant Buddha and feel extreme tightness.On a premise, there's a big bowl. It has ladder to climb and see inside. I don't know what this is for but I guess you put donation. Don't fall down!!

Check out the reclining Buddha and enjoy great views from the temple top. This temple is right on the main tourist circuit.
