Archaeological Area of Bagan is located in Myanmar. It can also be listed among outstanding Buddhist attractions. Once upon a time there was a flourishing city of Bagan. It was the capital of the eponymous state. The ruins were discovered by archaeologists quite recently. The main jewels of these places are ancient stupas and pagodas, which were restored during the excavation. Some stupas are fairly large. All interested can enter into them.
In recent years, the Bagan area has gained immense tourist popularity. Thousands of travelers come here to see the ancient Buddhist statues and unique relics. Curious tourists are attracted by local caves too, where the fragments of rock art can be found. Bagan Ancient City occupies more than 40 square km. There are thousands of pagodas and stupas, many of which were built in the 11th-13th centuries.
According to the available historical data, the design of the once prosperous city was created by the best artists and craftsmen. The ancient city of Bagan was one of the largest centers of science, religion, and culture in the world. For hundreds of years, local churches and monasteries were keeping many unique relics, which in the period of the desolation of the city were almost completely destroyed. Modern pilgrims and travelers have an opportunity to admire restored architectural monuments, as well as several Buddhist shrines that survived after seven hundred years. Next - Bulguksa Monastery
