Transfer by car to Dhammayazaka, built in 1196, is the largest pentagonal-based stupa in Bagan. From here, your horse cart takes you to Lemyethna Temple, topped by an Indian-style apex. Visit the Payathonzu complex (if open), a set of three interconnected shrines linked by passages and adorned with Mahayana-style or tantric mural paintings. Nearby is Nandamannya Temple with fine frescoes and an unexpectedly erotic mural. Wander through the village of Minnanthu to see how local people live.
