  Dhammayangyi Phaya

 

Myanmar

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

 

The interlocking, mortarless brick-work, best appre-ciated on the upper terraces, which are accessible by hid-den stairways, is said to rank as the finest in Bagan.
