Htilominlo Pahto Nyaung-U, Myanmar
Bagan Archaeological Zone , Nyaung-U
The Htilomino Temple is also known as the last temple built in the Burmese style in Bagan. It is one of the largest temples in Bagan and was founded at the beginning of the thirteenth century on the orders of King Htilominlo, who wanted to celebrate his coronation as the ruler of Burma at the time. Unfortunately, the temple was destroyed by an earthquake that hit Bagan on July 8, 1975. Unlike other temples destroyed by catastrophes, this one was restored. On the walls of the Htilominlo temple, old horoscopes, which were created to protect the building from damage, deserve attention. Htilominlo Pahto is seen as the prototype or classic type of the Burmese temple in Bagan, on the basis of which modern temples are built in this country.
