The Phra Tada Pagoda has the largest tower top platform in Bagan, and photographers with tripods can come here to watch the sunrise and sunset. The Phra Tada stupa is not on the main road, so it is necessary to cross the small road, so it is not easy to ride a battery car when the light is not good. We also chose to go in the afternoon. The access to the tower is very narrow, and the platform is absolutely open with a good view. It is recommended to call a carriage in the morning and evening to take pictures of sunrise and sunset, which is safer.
It is said that this is the best place to see Mugui-the locals wearing sarongs drove the cattle and sheep back home in a carriage. The cattle and sheep and the carriage raised clouds of smoke and dust on the sandy land, and their eyes were full of golden light under the reflection of the sunset. Cows and sheep flew across the rising dust, mixed with impure particles in the air, and under the slanting setting of the setting sun, they set against the pagoda in the distant background, as if traveling through time and space, as if returning to the ancient times where the Kingdom of Bagan was located. . The picture effect is already in front of me. There should be as many shoes as there are people on the top. To enter from the door, you have to go through a long passage. And the road under your feet is no better than the doorway, or even worse. Imagine that we are walking barefoot on such a road in a dark black passage. Because the passage is narrow, we are cautious and urged by people behind. That taste - enter the gate, there is a standing Buddha inside, occupying There is a low staircase next to half of the entire eastern building. It is the only way to the top of the temple. The way up to the tower is very narrow, but when you come up, you will find that the viewing platform is so big. The highlight here is the largest platform in Bagan. It is also an accident that this stupa has the largest platform in Bagan. The foundation of this pagoda is very large. The original design was supposed to be a huge stupa similar in size to Suramani and Ananda. However, due to various relationships, the upper part of the pagoda shrank a lot during the construction. There is such a huge platform. Standing on this platform, many unknown pagodas in the distance have a panoramic view. I once heard that the place was sealed due to the earthquake in August 2016. However, this is not the case, or is it only a few months away? When I went, it was still possible to climb here. This is the first tower we climbed after arriving in Bagan, and it was also the first sunset in Bagan. I knew it would not be as spectacular as the sunset over Xu Sanduo and Brady, but it still surprised us. Finally found a good place to sit down and enjoy it quietly. Appreciate the beautiful sunset that you will never tire of in Myanmar, admire the magnificent glow of the changing colors, and admire the thousands of stupas whose outlines are gradually graying out. It seems that everything in the world is gone, leaving only an endless daydream. In the sunset, I saw countless ochre-red ancient pagodas and dilapidated temples scattered all over the floor, like a half-played chess game. The afterglow of the setting sun is splendidly plated on this difficult land, and every pagoda is lit up with golden brilliance, standing dignified in the grass, like the gorgeous and lonely back of the former dynasty. Just one glance, it is unforgettable, so gorgeous and classic, but also revealing desolation, in the wilderness, in the forgotten corner, she is beautiful in her own eyes, looking at the scorching state of the world with cold eyes.
The location of Pyathadapagoda can be said to be the most inconvenient place. But the scenery is great. In the evening, there is a grazing return. There is a large platform at an altitude of 190 meters. It is not a problem to stand on hundreds of people. It is also a good place to watch the sunset.
Every evening, many carts and carriages come here to watch the sunset. Because the platform on this tower is very large, it can accommodate hundreds of people to watch the sunset, and there are villages nearby, so you can see the sheep returning from the grazing. Herd and cattle. If you come by bike, you will leave as soon as the sun sets, because the crowds descending from the tower are crowded on the only passage, and the light soon dims after sunset.
I accidentally found the Pyathada Paya that Singapore helped restore and rebuild, a huge 6-story stupa with a 3-story platform on it. Ascended to see the mountains of Shan State, the wide Ayeyarwady River, trees, and stupas, A glance. Since the distance between the pagoda and the temple is not very far, a wonderful sunset scene is formed.
