Photographer's Note

The Ananda Pahto, or Phaya, was the first of Bagan’s great temples, and remains one of the finest, most beautiful and perhaps most photographed, of all of Bagan’s architectural complexes. It is a symmetrical masterpiece of Mon architectural style and, with some North Indian influence, reflects the transition from the Early to the Middle period of Bagan architecture.

The temple was completed during the reign of King Kyanzittha (r. 1084-1113), who reportedly was inspired by eight visiting Indian monks and their story of earlier life in the legendary Nanadamula cave in the Himalayas. The Ananda both sought to recreate a vision of this cave and reflect the endless wisdom of the Buddha

Soaring to 51 meters, it received its golden gilding in 1990 in commemeration of the 900th anniversary of its construction.
