Gu Byauk Gyi Zedi Myinkaba (ဂူပြောက်ကြီးစေတီမြင်းကပါ)
Name of a Buddhist temple in
to the North of
Myinkaba Village, adjacent to Myazedi
Phaya (fig.). It was built
in 1113 AD by Prince
Yaza Kumar, i.e.
in honour of his father
upon the latter's death.
temple has well-preserved murals, which
are believed to date from the time of the construction of the temple and are hence
among the oldest remaining in Bagan. The temple is typical of the
that the interior is dimly lit by lattice-style perforated walls rather than
open windows. The main building houses a brick
seated in the
bhumisparsa pose. There is another temple of the same name
to the Southeast of
Wetkyi-in Village, which ‒to distinguish
between these two temples of the same name‒ is usually referred to as
Gu Byauk Gyi Zedi Wetkyi-in (fig.).
