Many temples in Bagan are nothing special just by looking at their appearance. Abiyadana Temple is a normal-looking temple. But there are interesting murals inside. Although it is very weathered, there is no one to look after and maintain it... but it's worth checking in.
You have to take off your shoes when you enter the temple, so just put on slippers here. The inside is cooler and there are a lot of people. If you don't know how to worship the Buddha, you can watch how the local people do it, and then go and learn it.
The stepped stupa is unique in Myanmar, and there is a treasure museum in the nearby pavilion, which contains the wealth accumulated by monks over the centuries, including carvings, lacquerware and dancing costumes.
This temple was built in the 11th century and is located 400 meters south of Manuha Temple. The highlight here is undoubtedly the mural inside, but since it is forbidden to take pictures inside, I can't show it to everyone here!
Many temples built by the Bagan dynasty are famous for their mural paintings, and Abiyadana Temple is one of them. The murals on the outer walls of the cloister are bodhisattvas, and the murals on the inner walls are statues of Buddha. On the wall of the main entrance, you can also see scenes of traditional theater performances, with an introduction by Meng Wen. There is an inscription in the Abiyadana Temple saying that the temple was built by the queen, but the real builder was King Jiang Xituo. The place of the temple is the place where Empress Abiyadana waited for the king when he fled from the palace. Just relying on this allusion can arouse our infinite reverie...
