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".
