Thatbyinnyu Temple

This is a view of the Thatbyinnyu Temple from the doorway of the Nathlaung Kyaung Temple. Nathlaung Kyaung was apparently built in the 10th or 11th century and is one of the few hindu temples in the area.  Thatbyinnyu is relatively new being completed in the mid 12th century.

As luck would have it, the moon just happened to be in the right place to view next to the spire through narrow holes in the Nathlaung Kyaung wall.  And there were birds too.
