Ngarmyethnar Temple means "the temple with
five faces". In Bagan, many temples have four faces and place
four Buddha Images inside. This represents the four Buddhas
Kakusandra, Gaunagamana, Kassapa and Gotama. But there are also
some temples with five entrances, which represents a place for
the next Buddha to be, known as the "Arimadara".
There are five sitting Buddha images inside
the temple, some of the images are ruined.
