Explore the Ananda Temple

Bookmark and Share

Ananda Temple is one of the finest and most venerated temples in Bagan. It was built by King Kyansittha in 1091 AD. Of the four standing Buddha images, the ones on the south and north are original, contemporary with the building.

Both of the two original standing images seem to be smiling when viewed from the vestibules and solemn by a closer look. Annually, Ananda temple festival falls on the full moon of Pyatho (usually between December and January to the Lunar Calendar). The festival attracts thousands of locals from near and far. Up to a thousand monks chant day and night during the three days of the festival.
