04 Feb Bagan Temples: The Fine Brickworks of Dhammayangyi Pahto
The largest of Bagan temples, Dhammayangyi is also one of the most beautiful, for its architecture and decorations as well as the paintings inside.
Built in the second half of the 12th Century (approx. 1167-1170), Dhammayangyi temple displays an exquisite brickwork, by many considered one of the best in Bagan.
Certainly, it was one of my favourite Bagan temples, with its fine carvings, the imposing architectural structure and the chromatic effect of the red bricks blending perfectly with the colours of the surrounding landscape.
