Dhammayangyi _BAGAN

Dhammayangyi  Pagoda was built by King Narathu in the mid - twelfth century and is the largest of the pagodas found on the plains of Bagan. The so-called city of ‘four million temples’ on the banks of the Irrawaddy  River was founded in the mid - ninth century by the Burmese and was sacked by Kublai Khan and his Mongol armies in 1287. Today, the ancient city is uninhabited and the remnants of thousands of temples, Nat shrines and pagodas stand alone across the arid plains. The reclining Buddha is a common pose, representing the Buddha’s attainment of nirvana.
