Temples of Bagan

... is for the temples of course. There are literally thousands of temples around Bagan so we have to choose carefully. This site can be compared to Angkor Wat in Cambodia.

We are now about to leave Bagan. It was an absolutely wonderful experience, especially the sunsets, which we experienced on both nights we were there. We walked a lot on the first day. It is really hard to do anything in the scalding heat in this area, but we march on and try ...

... spent a while simply admiring the "usable art", but in the end I didn't buy any given that we still had 5 weeks of travel ahead of us (but I'd love to get some in the future).

There we sat, overlooking all the temples, waiting for the sun to set. Unfortunately, it became cloudy at the last minute. The following morning, we woke up at 4:30 am to attempt to catch the sunrise from one of the temples. Again, it was cloudy. We spent well over an hour at the top of the ...

... India, Ceylon as well as the Khmer Empire came to Pagan to study religion, astrology, alchemy, medicine, and law. During the kingdom's height between the 11th and 13th centuries, the wealthy Pagan rulers commissioned thousands of temples to be built in the plains. 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 2200 temples and ...
