Kyaunggyi Ama Temple is one large temple in Thiripyitsaya region. It is a two-storey building with a square base and a stupa on top. Kyaunggyi Ama means "the elder sister of the great temple".

This temple consists of an entrance hall leading to an inner hall. Some ruins of a large sitting Buddha Image lies inside the inner hall of the temple. As usual, there are wall paintings of the 550 jatakas of the lives of Buddha. There are also Myanmar and Pali ink inscriptions on the wall. Some of the stuccos can still be seen. Nearby is another similar temple known as Kyaunggyi Nyima.

Some archeologists assume that Kyaunggyi Ama and Kyaunggyi Nyima temples were built by two sisters of the Bagan Period.
