A series in Annette’s Shorts” on the Temples of Bagan
In Early 2015 I spent three weeks in Myanmar. No part did I fall more in love with than Bagan, and archaeological, modern day historical site. True many of the local people were relocated a mile away, but they still all benefit from the visitors that come here to see what I believe is arguably the largest collection of Temples and Pagodas in South East Asia . Info:The Seinnyet Nyima is a phato or pagoda built in the 12th century by Queen Seinnyet’s sister. This pagoda is believed to be older than the Seinnyet Ama temple. The pagoda is solid with a square floor plan. cSeinnyet Nyima and Seinnyet Ama Paya meaning “The Seinnyet Sisters Pagoda”. Nyima meaning younger sister and Ama meaning elder sister. They are two pagodas standing side by side, donated by two sisters of the Bagan monarch. Also know as the “two sisters” temples, they were constructed by two Seinnyet Queen sisters during the 11th century.
