Bagan – Manuha & Nanpaya Temples

Located in Myinkaba Village (near Bagan), these two Temples are built next to each other.

 

Manuha Temple

Manuha Temple was built by captive Mon King Manuhain 1067 AD.  Its interesting as the two story building is just large enough to cover very large Buddha images that are inside.  Apparently the Mon King Manuhain built it to express his displeasure of being captive by King Anawrahta in Bagan.
