This large two-storied temple was likely built during the late 12th or early 13th century. In terms of layout, it resembles the layouts of Gawdawpalin and Sulamani. The temple sits within a walled enclosure. Much of the beautiful stucco remains on the exterior of the structure. There are also two-colored glazed plaques which decorate the base and upper terraces of the temple. The structure contains mural paintings, but much of these have faded; the better preserved murals can be seen on the ceiling vaults. The interior walls contain numerous painted horoscopes dating from the 15th through the 18th centuries. According to Stadtner (2005), a seven-lined painted inscription can be found in the principal entrance hall, and this records a good deed performed by a particular Burmese individual.
