Tayok Pye Temple

Type of monument : Type II Temple
Location :
Region : Minnanthu
Built by : King Narathihapate
Date : 12th Century
Monument Number :

Tayok Pye is a large temple in extreme cases of the group of Minnanthu. It was built by Narathihapate (1256-1287) also known as the king who fled from the Mongolian invasion. This is the meaning of Tayok Pye in Myanmar. The king was not able to complete the temple. It is a beautiful temple decorated with much smoothness, and which does not show this king directing an empire in crumbs. The temple has two levels. It can be imagined surrounded by a superstructure out of wood. The enamelled decoration is particularly interesting with many plates intended to receive the jatakas. The characters in stucco who decorate his frontage are enough rare to be mentioned.
