Travelogue

Nandapyinnya (Bagan)

Pronouced as Nanda-pyin-nya, the small temple has murals wall paintings but photography is prohibited.

The location is out of the normal temples, so the site has fewer tourists. The highlight of my visit to this temple was the goat herding.

I walked to nearby ‘deserted’ temples alone, and have all the temples to myself.

Some of these remote temples have impressive structure and massive in size.

If you explore the details, some of the carvings were newly restored, and some are original (but mostly deteriorated).

Most of the architectures  follow similar style and design. You can see this one-head-two-body lion in many temples, including Shwezigon Paya.

I saw many traveller posted photos of murals. In facts, most of these temples prohibits photography (especially flash). Do take note to follow guideline in order to preserve the delicate murals and artefacts.
