  Gu Byauk Gyi Zedi Myinkaba

 

Myanmar

Gu Byauk Gyi Zedi Myinkaba, is a Buddhist temple in Bagan, located to the North of Myinkaba Village. It was built in 1113 AD by Prince Yaza Kumar in honour of his father King Kyansittha (fig.), upon the latter's death.

 

The temple is typical of the Mon-style in that the interior is dimly lit by lattice-style perforated walls rather than open windows. The main building houses a brick Buddha image seated in the bhumisparsa pose.
