Recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage, Myanmar’s ancient capital of Bagan is without a doubt the most amazing site in Myanmar, if not in all of Southeast Asia. Located on the banks of the Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) River, it is estimated that over 10,000 Buddhist temples, pagodas and monasteries once stood on this 100 square km plain in central Myanmar, of which the remains of over 2000 temples and pagodas still survive to the present day.
Under King Anawratha in the mid-9th century, Bagan was a central powerbase where, over the course of 250 years, the rulers and their wealthy subjects constructed over 10000 religious monuments.
This incredible cluster of temples will surely make Bagan the highlight of your stay in Myanmar.
