Sulamani pahto is one of Bagan's most attractive temples with its two-storey pyramid-like brick architecture. It combines horizontal planes of the early period with the vertical lines of the middle. Founder of the temple was King Narapatisithu, ruler of Bagan from 1173 to 1210. Construction works started about 1181 and the temple got the name “Crowning jewel”. Like several other temples of Bagan, it was hit by the 1975 earthquake but was restored to its former glory since that time.

Ananda pahto, built by King Kyansittha (1084-1113) in 1105 is a must for all visitors of Bagan, a masterpiece of Buddhist architecture. The king's reign was largely peaceful and as a great admirer of Mon culture, he pursued a conciliatory policy towards the Mon of the south. Thus Ananda temple follows Mon traditions, and although being seriously hit by the 1975  earthquake it has totally been restored since then. On the occasion of 900th anniversary of its construction celebrated in 1990s the temple spires were gilded.
