Visit the infamous Phaung Daw U Pagoda, which enshrines five Buddha images believed to have been carried to this area by the widely-traveled 12thcentury King Alaungsithu then Nga Phe Chaung Monastery or Jumping Cat Monastery in other words. We then ride our boat to the Nampan and Innpawkhone villages.

From here, drive to the small village of Wetkyi-in to see the wonderful Kubyaukgyi Temple, renowned for its ancient murals then Ananda temple, one of the most reserved monuments in the entire Bagan. Your sightseeing also includes the Htilominlo Temple, which houses four Buddha figures on the ground floor and four more on the first floor. Continue your exploration of the city’s treasure trove of Buddhist art and architecture. Enjoy the sunset on the top of the Shwenandaw Pagoda.
