Whitewashed Lemyethna temple, North of Minnanthu, Myanmar (Burma).

Lemyethna means ‘Temple of the Four Faces’. The bright and airy temple was built in the early 13th century by a minister at the court of King Htilominlo in the style of Bagan’s later temples. Unfortunately the original wall paintings have been white washed and modern murals painted over the top. This temple is still in regular use by local villagers.
