Visible far away from the ancient city's plains, Shwesandaw Pagoda draws Hindu pilgrims, Buddhist devotees, and casual tourists to immerse themselves in a thousand-year-old religious tradition. Take a steep 100 m (328 ft) climb to reach the top of the pagoda, which offers a panoramic view of the surrounding grassland and temples. Examine the white symmetrical structure built in 1057, along with its bell-shaped stupa and terracotta terraces. Sacred hairs of Gautama Buddha lie enshrined within the pagoda, while statues of Ganesh and other Hindu deities adorn the corners. The weather can get very hot here, so carry extra water and take care while climbing up and down the pagoda. Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Bagan using our trip planner.

Shhesandi paya shining in orange illuminated by the sunset is also very beautiful.
Pagoda alta e molto bella, non perdetevi il Buddha disteso all’interno di uno dei piccoli edifici all’entrata del tempio.
