The Alo-daw Pyi Pagoda, also known as the Alodawpyi Pagoda or Alodawpyay Pagoda, is a Buddhist temple in Bagan, Bago Region, Myanmar. Built in the early 12th century, the temple is notable for its old structure and a number of fresco paintings.[1] The temple has been the subject of restorative efforts—funded by donations given by General Khin Nyunt[2][3]—since 1994, and is a popular pilgrimage site.[1] The temple's name translates to "Wish-fulfilling".[1][2]
