Awe-inspiring Bagan (or Pagan) – Myanmar’s answer to Angkor Wat – is an ancient city located in the country’s Mandalay region. From the 9th to 13th centuries it was the capital of the Kingdom of Pagan, the first attempt to unify the regions that would later become modern Myanmar. During the kingdom’s height between the 11th and 13th centuries, over 10,000 Buddhist temples, pagodas and monasteries were constructed on the Bagan plains, of which over 2200 temples and pagodas still survive in various states of repair.
The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has recently begun restoring one of Bagan’s most impressive structures – the Ananda Temple. The ASI’s groundbreaking project, the first long-term, overseas-led archaeological venture in Myanmar for many years, is scheduled to run for another five seasons.
