  Dhammayangyi Phaya

 

Myanmar

Dhammayangyi Phaya is the largest of all temples in Bagan and was built by the 12th century King Narathu, presumably to atone for his sins and to raise his stature.

 

The interlocking, mortarless brickwork, best appreciated on the upper terraces, which are accessible by hidden stairways, is said to rank as the finest in Bagan.
