The Pagan Pagoda, Myanmar

Nov 26, 2009





Located about 425 mil or 680 km in north of Yangon, Myanmar. Pagan pagoda is a religious place which contains more than 2000 temples, pagoda and stupas. This building built and decorated by master craftsmen in 11-13 AD.

Today, the remains of more than 2,000 of Pagan’s pagodas and temples form the greatest assemblage of Buddhist monuments in the world. Pagan is a religious and archaeological marvel, and some would say it’s “a wonder of the ancient World.” The temples stretch for eight miles along the bank of the Ayeyarwady River and for about two miles inland. At some points the ruins are so dense that it’s often described as a place where it’s impossible to move without touching something sacred.
