  Sabbannu Tally Temple

 

Myanmar

To the northeast of and adjascent to Sabbannu Phaya (fig.), the tallest Buddhist temple in Bagan, is a small so-called tally temple, i.e. a structure built with bricks set aside from the main temple.

 

To keep count of the number of bricks used in the construction of Sabbannu Phaya, which is also known as Thatbyinnyu Phaya (fig.), one brick was set aside for every 10,000 bricks used, and the tally temple was built with the bricks set aside for this.
