Myinkaba village was built in AD 1067 about a decade after the Mon king was brought to Bagan. Traditionally, it considered as one of the earliest temples of Bagan. It is still a place of worship for the Buddhists.
The Gubyaukgyi Pagoda was built to enshrine the golden image, it is a fine temple in the early style, square, with a vestibule in the east. It is also noted for the paintings, which cover the walls of the vestibule, the corridor and the sanctum. These paintings are among the earliest still existing in Bagan.
The Seinnyet Nyima Paya is located in the Myinkabar region, next to the Bagan-Chauk highway. They stand together in a brick enclosure. The superstructure consists of four steep receding terraces, the lower three of which have medical stairways. Above these terraces rises a curvilinear spire. The triple pediments which once framed the entrances are now severely damaged, but the stucco carvings which remain - decorative scrolls, ogre-heads disgorging flowers, bird and animal figures some of which are mythical - hint at the richness of the original ornamentation.
The Sulamani Guphaya or Pahto Temple is one of Bagan's premier temple attractions. It is located in the Minnanthu village. The name itself means Crowning Jewel or Small Ruby. It was the first and most important temple of the late period from 1170 to 1300 of Bagan monument building. Important features of the Sulamani include its fine brickwork and use of stone in both load-bearing areas as well as on vulnerable external corner elements. The interior was once painted with fine frescoes but only dim traces can be seen today.
The Pyathatgyi Pagoda located southeast of the Sulamani is another ancient pagoda. It was perhaps the last great construction of the dynasty of Bagan. The way the vaults on corridors intersect is exceptional.
The Leimyatnar Pagoda has porches projecting on all four sides and on the main entrance in the east. The superstructure consists of receding terraces, with crenulated parapets and small stupa at the corners, surmounted by a curvilinear spire, which is crowned by a stupa. Inside the temple remain the 550 statues of the Buddha's lifetime and also the 28 Buddha images. Although most of the parts of the temple have been ruined, the paintings, the sculpture and other carvings can be studied well.
The Payathonzu Temple is to the east of Leimyatnar Pagoda. It is adorned with paintings of the 550 Jataka stories and the small Thambuddhay figures. The frescoes and architecture are estimated to be of the late 13th century.
The Tayoke Pyae Pagoda is a large temple built by the king who fled Mongolia during their invasion and left the pagoda unfinished. It is a beautiful pagoda decorated with much smoothness. The characters in stucco who decorate the facade are rare enough to be mentioned.
The Thambulla Temple was built in 1255 in the shape of the cruciform. It is a rare example of a Buddhist temple bearing the name of a woman. Four large statues of Buddha supported by the central pillar face the four cardinal points.
