Gubyauknge and Gubyaukgyi

Posted By : admin/ 23 0

East of Htilominlo, the 11th­century Gubyauknge, one of Bagan’s oldest temples,  retains some fine original stuc- cowork on its exterior. A pair of  nats, or nature spirits, flank the door way to the main shrine, reflecting the syncretic nature of Buddhism in the medieval city.

Gubyaukgyi, a stone’s throw northeast, is a 13th­century building with a distinctive, pyramidal sanctuary tower surmounting its roof. Usually called the Wetkyin Gubyaukgyi  to distinguish it from its name- sake in Myinkaba, the temple  retains some fine mural traces around the entrance ceiling.
