The Thatbyinnyu Temple (Burmese: သဗ္ဗညု ဘုရား, [θaʔ bjɪ̀ɰ̃ ɲ̥ṵ pʰəjá]; Pali: Sabbannu or “the Omniscient”) is a Theravada Buddhist temple in Bagan (Pagan), Myanmar. The temple is recognized as a monument in the Bagan Archeological Area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Completed in 1150–51 during the reign of King Sithu I, the temple reflected the Bagan period’s “innovative architectural and artistic creativity” and “an expression of the self-confident Burmese spirit of nationhood.”[note 1] At the pinnacle height of 66 m (217 ft), the five-story Thatbyinnyu is known as the tallest temple in Bagan, alongside the tallest stupa in Bagan, the 100 m (328 ft) Shwesandaw.

I am only able to provide photos of the outside as we were not able to enter the Temple. We wished we could have been able to see more as it is generally thought of as the most beautiful Temple in Bagan.
