The temple is absolutely stunning. It is getting little bit crowdy coz most of the times in certain time a group of 20-40 people will come with a guide, but don't worry they will continue in like 20 minutes, so don't be sad. Definitely go...More

A small temple that displays some wonderfully preserved wall murals. Regrettably however, photography of these is not allowed.

Another smaller temple which is quite pretty inside. Unfortunately there's a tendency for locals to hound you as you enter the temple in an effort to show you the murals inside and extract some cash, and this somewhat detracts from the quality of the experience....More

Photography was prohibited inside. Three small pagodas connected in rows had splendic designs and figures of mural painting from walls to ceiling. One pagoda had completed paintings. One had sketches and partial putting of colours. So can study the method of bagan era painting technique.

Payathonzu is 3 temples joined into one. It is not a must-see, but it is worth a visit. It is not permitted to take pictures inside the temple. It's very quiet. Not many people here. Although, I did buy a T-shirt here for my son...More

We had to take a cab to visit it. It's far away, from the main temples area, to explore by bus or even by bike. The murals inside this temple are very badly preserved and the key master only gets there at 9am, if at...More
