Temples of Bagan

Temples of Bagan

Burma’s central plains, lush thanks to the waters of the Irrawaddy, have played host to many old kingdoms. Today the plains are strewn with over 2,000 temples, stupas and pagodas, the legacy of this golden era. They come in all shapes and sizes, some simple and some elaborate, with many containing vivid frescoes and intricate carvings. The very best temples are gathered around Old Bagan and there are four that are considered must see – Anando Pano, Shwesandaw Paya, Shwezigon Paya and Dhammayangyi Pahto. Don’t forget to find a temple to climb for sunrise, sunset or both to see the plain in all its glory.
