Private Full day Bagan with boat trip to Tantkyi Taung Pagoda

Bagan Full Day Sightseeing Two including boat trip to Tantkyi Taung Pagoda (08:00 AM-06:00 PM)

The enchantment of Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) has been legendry, not only for its cultural and natural heritages but also for its rich eco-diversities such as fresh air, green mountain ranges, picturesque landscapes, large lakes, long rivers and un-spoilt beaches all of which are unique in the region.
 
 

Bagan was founded in 849 AD and became the capital of first unified Kingdom and the first multinational Union of Myanmar in 1044 AD. It is located in the east bank of the famous Ayeyarwady River with the span of 42 square kilometers where there are over 5,000 mysterious and magnificent stupas and hollow pagodas that are making Bagan the wonders of the world. One of the richest archaeological sites in Asia. Memorable for its tranquility, as well as for its majesty. The temples in Bagan are infinitely fascinating, each with its own story and legend.

The Tant Kyi Taung Pagoda was built by King Anawrahta in 397 ME on Tantkyi Hill, where the royal white elephant bearing the tooth relics rested for the second time, after it sat at a place, market by Shin Myethna Thettawshay Pagoda, then at a place where heavy rains fell, market by Shin Mogaung Pagoda, and at a place where the elephant mustered its strength, market by Sin Min Thwin Pagoda.

Tantkyitaung Pagoda is 90 feet (27 m) high with the base of 60 feet (18 m). Its nine tiers of umbrella contains a silver vane and the diamond bud. It has been renovated in successive periods. It has an image of Lord Buddha, a statue of Ananda and that of the forest guardian. A look down from the pagoda platform reveals the head of a dragon protruding from the walling down below. It is said that the tail end of this likeness of the dragon is around the site of Shwezigon Pagoda
