Tharabha Gate


Tharabha Gate

Tharabha Gate (Burmese: သရဗာတံခါး, IPA: [θa̰ɹəbà dəɡá]; also spelt Sarabha or Tharabar) is the primary gateway to Bagan (formerly Pagan), located to the east. It is one of the few remaining gates to the ancient city boundaries of Bagan. It consists of two brick-walled shrines, each opposing one another, of two guardian nats, named Min Mahagiri and Hnamadawgyi (Shwemyethna), who were executed by order of a king.
