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.
