Myanmar’s Temples of Bagan

Over 3,500 breathtaking Buddhist pagodas and temples dating back to the 9th century make up the ancient city of Bagan in Myanmar.

Scholars believe that Bagan rulers constructed over 13,000 religious buildings over a 250 year-span, establishing this country’s Buddhist landmark. In 2019, UNESCO officially named Myanmar's Temples of Bagan a World Heritage site and though many of its temples were destroyed over the centuries from earthquakes, preservation of the imposing and impressive still-standing structures is ongoing.
