What travelers say:

Ruiguyi Pagoda Temple is a Buddhism building in the middle of Bagan. It was built during the reign of King Alon Siddu in 1140. Ruiguyi means "golden cave". Because it is close to the ancient palace, it is called the palace stupa. The tower is built on a 3.6-meter-high brick foundation. Legend has it that this is the king’s good fortune that caused a huge brick to emerge from the ground. According to historical records, the king was driven out of the palace by his son when he was old and moved to the pagoda monastery, and was later killed. There are still four Buddha statues and two inscriptions in the temple. Climb to the viewing platform of the Pagoda Temple to see the nearby Pagoda Temples.
