  • Manuha Temple – built by the captive Mon King Manuha in 1067 & one of the oldest temples in Bagan. Inside, there are 3 seated Buddha statues face the front of the building, & in the back there’s a huge reclining Buddha.

The king put the royal umbrella at the centre of the five sons positioned in circle and took an oath for the umbrella to bend towards the one who should be King.

When the prince became king, he built the pagoda at the venue of the Royal Umbrella.

The monk was about to leave the kingdom when the king begged for forgiveness and sought advice to build the pagoda.
