Kubyauk Gyi is one of the best exmples of “windows on the top of Prasat” in Pukam art. The windows are covered by stones to minimise the light, which is the aesthetic of the early Pukam period. There is a pediment with holes at the top, allowing more light to get in. The Clec arch is small and short and graviates towards the center according to the pattern in the early Pukam art. At the top, there is tiering pattern consisting of the roof and Amalaka, similar to the northen India.
