Named after Upali, a well-known monk, this ordination hall was built in the mid-13th century and stands across the road from the Htilominio Temple.

The rectangular building has roof battlements imitative of Burmese wooden architecture and a small central spire rising from the rooftop. Most buildings of this type were made of wood and have long since disappeared.

TWO BUDDHA IMAGES PLACED BACK-TO-BACK INSIDE UPALI THEIN
 

Inside there are some brightly painted frescoes on the walls and ceilings from the late 17th and early 18th century.

ANCIENT MURAL PAINTINGS
 

The building is usually kept locked in order to protect them. The Upali Thein was renovated during the reign of the Konbaung Dynasty in 1794 abd 1795. The walls now represent the previous 28 Buddha images, as well as scenes from the life of Guatama Buddha.
