I went there in February 2019. There are many temples in Minka Village between Old Bagan and New Bagan. It is said that this temple has the most beautiful appearance. It faces the main street. There is a souvenir shop at the entrance of the temple. There are many attractions, so it is a standard attraction popular with tourists. It provides a place where the serpent can hide when the king who is in conflict with the former king is in danger. It is characterized by the cover of naga on the Buddhist statues in the main temple of the temple, which was built for gratitude after he escaped from crisis and subsequently ascended to the throne. Unfortunately, shooting inside is also prohibited.
The temple is beautiful and well preserved. The highlight is the two-person statue of the Buddha with a hood over its head and the hood is shaped like a Naga, which I think is the origin of the temple name. :)
The temple is well worth seeing, surrounded by a complete wall, inside beautiful murals, colored clay sculptures and golden Buddha, with a little Indian style. On the left hand side of the old Zhagan road to the new Zhagan road, the opposite side of the road is the Somingji Temple.
There are many statues of boa constrictors in the temple, very shocking, should be Naga temple bar, I feel not very comfortable inside, looked once and went.
A quaint and elegant temple built in the 11th century.
A lovely little group that we stopped off to see whilst en route elsewhere - which is part of the charm of travelling around Bagan under your own steam.
