Mingalazedi is the last and largest temple in Bagan. It was built during the fall of Bagan, and it was the last magnificent temple built before the Mongolian invasion. It has been closed since 2012. You can only see it from a distance. You can't even walk around. It is worth staying for a few minutes. The structure is impressive and history is very important.
Mingala means "good luck or kindness" in Burmese. It was built in the fall of the Bagan era in the middle of the 13th century. It is one of the biggest monuments in Bagan. Its structure is similar to the Ruijingong Pagoda, the prototype of the Burmese pagoda. It is a strong stupa and you cannot enter it. It is a large pagoda built at the end of the 13th century. There are fences, so you can't get close to the sides, but the overall decoration looks beautiful.
The entire pagoda consists of a three-story stepped platform and a gourd-shaped pagoda. On the side of the three-story platform, 550 green-yellow glazed bricks were once inlaid. These beautiful glazed brick reliefs describe the Buddha after being awarded by the Buddha The story of practicing Bodhisattva before becoming a Buddha.
From a distance, you can see the magnificent dome of this building. Unfortunately, when I visited and explored in December last year, it was completely closed, so I can only admire it outside the iron gate. What a pity!: (
The scenery on the top of the tower is quite independent. The space of the whole area is very complicated. The history here is very long. Many large historical figures can be seen in this column.
