Why Thambula Temple is special ?

Thambula, a temple lies on the north of the Minnanthu village which was built in 1255. This representative of a single-storeyed temple in the Late Style takes its name from its builder, Queen Thambula, consort of King Uzana (12497-1256). However, the name Thambula-a name found in the chronicles- is perhaps not quite right. In the inscriptions it appears as Thonlula, the Myanmar rendition of the Pali Tilokacandadevi. Moon of the Three Worlds. The Thambula is a square structure with porches on all four sides, and with receding terraces and a curvilinear spire above. The interior, well lit by two high, arched entrances, has mural paintings.

Visiting the land of many temples, it’s hard to say what we impressed most. It’s depend on personal interests. For us, the Thambula Temple was an excellent architecture of old bagan. With a square structure with porches on 4 sides, wall and ceiling murals, many buddhas, the temple marks its own value and attract more and more tourists. We love this place.
