Dhamma-yan-gyi is the tallest of all the temple in Bagan. Built in the late 12th century, it has the same floor plan as the more well known Anada temple. The upper terrace where the best sunrise viewing is now off limit to visitors.
As for us the mundane photographers, there are a few places for the sunrise capture, one is from the Mingala-zedi, the other is the Minyeingon where this picture was taken. As for the reported off-limit on the top terrace of the Dhamma, what the heck is that on the left bottom corner?

Where are the people?? Dammit Thien, all I saw was you taking shots of people and your first post is of a landscape?? Plus, you have a great big blowout inthe middle of your frame. Couldn't your camera handle the exposure lattitude? Maybe you should have bought a Pentax :P
Actually, this is pretty cool. I think the exposure is right on, nice details in the sky, good sharpness overall, and I like the small detail of the string of lights from the top of the stupa. Looks like your horizon is slightly askew.
This would have been even better had you shot with a Carbon Fiber tripod. ;)
Edit: BTW, maybe that is a monk, and this now qualifies as a portrait as opposed to a landscape.

this picture speaks for itself. Having been there, I can really appreciate your vantage point and crop: not always easy...
