Htilominlo Temple. Built about 1211 A.D. by King Nantaungmya, it is one of the greater temples of Bagan. It is a double-storeyed structure rising 150 feet above the ground level. The square base measures 140 feet on each side. The main vestibule faces east, while smaller projections on the remaining sides’provide porches of arched entrances. Portions of fine plaster carvings still survive on the arch pediments, frieze and pilasters.
The terraces are decorated with pieces of sandstone glazed in green.The mural paintings in the interior have weathered. There are four Buddhas facing the cardinal points on the ground floor as well as on the upper storey, which is reached by two staircases built in the thickness of the walls. Many horoscopes are inscribed on the walls in order to secure them against damage or destruction.
Htilominlo is a misreading of Tiluikmanuiw, which is the Mon rendering of the Pali-Tiloka Mingala-the Blessing of the Three Worlds. Nantaungmya also is a misreading of Nantaungmya-a king who has many earrings. The original shape of miniature temples are still remaining above the riches along the corridor and Buddha images
