The Htilominlo Temple at the Bagan Archaeological Site

Htilominlo Temple (Burmese: ထီးလိုမင်းလိုဘုရား, pronounced: [tʰílòmɪ́ɴlò pʰəjá]) is a Buddhist temple located in Bagan (formerly Pagan), in Burma/Myanmar, built during the reign of King Htilominlo (also known as Nandaungmya) in 1211. The temple is three stories tall, with a height of 46 metres (150 feet), and built with red brick. It is also known for its elaborate plaster moldings. On the first floor of the temple, there are four Buddhas that face each direction. The temple was damaged in the 1975 earthquake and subsequently repaired. [1]
