The Mahabodhi Temple (Burmese: မဟာဗောဓိကျောင်း [məhà bɔ́dḭ tɕáʊɴ]) is a Buddhist temple located in Bagan, Burma. It was built in the mid-13th century during the reign of King Htilominlo, and is modelled after the Mahabodhi Temple, which is located in Bihar, India. The temple is built in an architectural style typical during the Gupta period, and contains a large pyramidal tower with many niches containing over 450 images of Buddha. The temple survived the 1975 Bagan earthquake, and was repaired in following years.
