Built by King Narathu, Dhammayangyi is well known for its massive structure. The brick bondage system is excellent with the finest brick-work and that no pin-point is possibly shared in the mortar interposed between every two layer of brick. The construction was never completed for the king was assassinated while the construction of the temple was in progress. The mile-stone of Bagan monument zone, the incomplete Dhammayangyi is hard to see beautiful architecture, but it could bear the natural disasters in the course of time due to its great massiveness.
