Architecture

These temples are so called Paya Thone Zu because the monuments consist of three distinct small square temples with vaulted corridors and porticoes, joined together by two vaulted narrow passages leading from the center one into the others.

The walls of the corridors and the vaults are covered with a mural painting, which is beautifully painted and well preserved. The half decorated middle sanctum and the plain walls of the western temple indicate that the work was abandoned before completion.

History

The date of the foundation of the temples is not known but it is assumed that they were built around the 13th centuries.
