Near the Thatbyinnyu pagoda and near the Nathlaung Kyaung, there lies a 10th-century pagoda which features the bulbous shape favored by the Pyus. North of this pagoda is the Pahtotharmya temple. These cylindrical types of pagodas were found in the Sri Keshtra era.


Ngakywenadaung pagoda was donated by King Taungthugyi during the 10th century. It is a 13 meter high cylindrical doom type pagoda. Many of the green-glazed tiles that covered it can still be seen. There are four monuments in Bagan which are fully covered with green-glazed tiles and Ngakywenadaung Pagoda is one of them. The meaning Ngakywenadaung is "the earing of Ngakywe".
