Gu Byauk Gyi Zedi Wetkyi-in (ဂူပြောက်ကြီးစေတီဝက်ကြီးအင်း)

Burmese. Wetkyi-in Great Cave’. Name of a Buddhist temple in Bagan, located to the Southeast of Wetkyi-in Village. This early 13th-century temple was built in the gu-style by King Kyansittha (fig.) and has an Indian-style pyramidal spire, reminiscent of that of the Maha Bodhi Pagoda in Bagan. Its interior has some exceptional frescoes depicting scenes from the jatakas and some large Buddha images seated in the bhumisparsa pose. There is another temple of the same name to the North of Myinkaba Village, which ‒to distinguish between these two temples of the same name‒ is usually referred to as Gu Byauk Gyi Zedi Myinkaba (fig.).
