To the northeast of the Thatbyinnyu is a small temple, called the tally pagoda. Apparently, during construction of the large Thatbyinnyu, one brick was laid aside for every 10,000 bricks used to keep count of the number of bricks used. The tally pagoda was constructed after completion of the Thatbyinnyu with the bricks that were laid aside.
To the southeast of the temple, in a monastery compound close by, stand two tall stone pillars built to support a huge bronze bell donated by the builder of the temple, King Alaungsithu. The pillars have foliations in the pattern of an inverted V carved in relief.
