The Kingdom of Pagan in Myanmar

myanmar, pagodas, kingdom, pagan, buddhism, temples, burmese, burma

In the 12th and 13th centuries, a large and powerful Kingdom flourished in the plains of central Myanmar. Kings built a succession of ancient temples and pagodas, which became a center for Theravada Buddhism. This was also the birthplace of the dominance of Burmese culture and language in modern-day Myanmar.

Visiting the temples in modern-day Bagan is one of the top things people do when they visit the country. You can see more than 2000 religious monuments in a very tiny area and experience the best sunset of your life.
