I saw Sulamani Temple in Nov. 2014. It was heavily damaged.

Thanks for the link susiean. The whole golden spire is gone from Sulamani. Very sad.

I have heard back from MinThu. He and his family are fine. He said there were no deaths among residents of Bagan. He described the damage as knocking the tops off a number of the temples.

The earthquake did mean that he lost his internet connection for five days or so. He said they are already working to repair the temples.

Thanks for reporting back, Kathie. Glad to hear MinThu and his family are fine. Too bad about the temple tops.
