Seinnyet Nyima Pagoda

Type of monument : Type III Temple
Location : North of Bagan Myothit
Region : Thiripyitsaya & Bagan Myothit
Built by : Queen Seinnyet's younger sister
Date : 11th Century
Monument Number : 1086

It is a pagoda of an unusual type.  The three receding square terraces and the bell-shaped dome do not differ much from those of other pagodas.

But above the dome rests a ribbed, bowl-shaped disc-the amalaka or myrobalan fruit- which makes the Seinnyet Nyima a distinctive type. Above the bowl-shaped disc rises a truncated conical finial which is made distinctive by the pronounced rings encircling it. Traditionally assigned to 11th century A.D.
