Nan Hpaya Temple (Nan Hpaya Temple) is located in Bagan’s Myinkaba Village (Myinkaba Village). It was built by the Mon king Manuha, who directly connected to the kingdom. It is a Hindu temple and is adjacent to Manuha Temple. "Ya" literally means "Royal Palace Temple". The Nambaja Temple was built using mud, mortar, stones and bricks. It was once the residence of Manuha. There are exquisite carvings on Brahma and other Hindu gods in the temple. "Hamsa" (like a swan bird) is a unique image and symbol of the Mon nationality, and its status is equal to the Chinese "dragon". It is said that after this temple was built, no one repaired it and left it abandoned, because it is an Indian temple and most of the Burmese people are Buddhists. The carvings in the temple are very exquisite and they are still well maintained after many years. In addition, unlike other brick Buddhist temples, this temple is also a rare stone building in Bagan.
The Nanpaya temple is a stunning surprise. It is a Hindu temple, one of four ancient monuments built from sandstone in Gansu, with Brahmans carved on four pillars inside. I don't know if it is because of the tower, the part of the tower that can be visited before can be frankly weak in the senses, the murals are broken and difficult to identify, but the statue of Buddha is renovated some counterfeit, generally is a quick glance to take a cool rest and go. But the entry to the South Payer Temple was immediately attracted by the relief on the walls, there is a feeling of return to Angkor Wat. The relief is very delicate, and basically intact, in the dark light there is a little mystery.
The exterior of the South Payer is not spectacular, but there are very interesting relief frescoes inside. The top of the tower is sometimes open to climbing. The relief frescoes alone are worth a visit, unlike the Chinese ones, which are not allowed to take pictures.
# Thousands of Pagodas Chih Foot • 2019 Myanmar Tour #No.34 Gangan Nan Pagoda (Nan Paye Temple) Nan Paye Temple, or also known as the South Pagoda, is just south of the Manu Harvard Tower, you can reach through a dirty path. Honestly, when walking along the path, I thought it was a shortcut for the driver to save time and the straight path should not be so messy. Didn't expect this to be the only way! Myanmar's people are generous enough, not because it's already a tourist attraction, but because it's not about "wind/face/renovation/construction". It was said to have been a prison, and the legendary South Pagoda was originally a Hindu pagoda, and perhaps authorities think it would be more appropriate to convert it into a prison than to be a Buddhist temple. But the South Paye Temple is a very impressive pagoda. Although there is no gorgeous exterior, the interior is breathtaking. Once inside the tower, it is blown away by the light from the top, and thousands of years ago people learned to use natural light to bring enough light to the dark interior. This design reminds me of the Pantheon in Rome. Although the Buddhist temple of Gangan has not reached that height, but has already had quite scientific design. Another example is that there are holes and stone windows, airy and transparent. It is said that this might be the earliest cave-style temple of Gansu. In the limited space of the South Paye Temple, four pillars in the center of the room are carved with the beautiful floating statue of the creation god Brahma. Brahma is full, with lotus in hand, and a smile on his face. The sculptures are similar to what was seen in Little Angkor, Cambodia, and I wonder if they are the product of a similar era. I think even though it was a prison, the prisoners in it weren't so boring in the days when they were surrounded by such fine artwork.
The location in the old museum of the main road out of the gate through Miao Zeyi and Minkabuku Biaoji Temple, after Manuha, to the South Yuya. It is also a big temple. There is this temple on the hotel's simple map. Nan Xiangya goes south again. On the left hand side is Nagayon. And then south is New Canegan.
This tiny temple, located near the Manuha Temple, has a stone window with holes, which is typical of the early buildings of the temple of Gangan. The highlight here is the four pillars of the nave, carved with the Hindu god of creation, Brahma! :)
