Pyathadar Temple is a double-cave type monument. Most of these kinds of monasteries were built out of wood. But some were built out of bricks and testify to the power of these monasteries.
 


The architectural design explains the expansion of vaults and broad corridors which made it possible to pass from one building to the other. This monastery has Indian influence. It even contains a hall of ordination and a small palate.

Pyathadar is really the most interesting monastery in Bagan especially if one is interested in the last pagoda of Bagan, and with the techniques of construction.

HIGH PASSAGES BETWEEN THE WALLS AND THE HALLS
 

It was perhaps the last great construction of the dynasty of Bagan. The technique of the vaults on corridors intersected from and to each other is completely exceptional.

This elegance in the construction industry is doubled of a massive superstructure but not compared to the Dhammayangyi, which is the most massive one of all.
