Bagan (formerly known as Pagan) was the capital of the Kingdom of Pagan from the 9th to the 13th centuries. This kingdom was the first to unify the area that is now Myanmar, establishing the Burmese culture and ethnicity, as well as Theravada Buddhism.

Over this period of rule, over 10,000 pagodas were built on the plains surrounding the capital next to the Irrawaddy River.

After Mongol invasions eventually led to the fall of the Kingdom of Pagan, the city was reduced to a small settlement, never to recover to its former glory. The area did, however, remain a destination for Buddhist pilgrimage. A few hundred pagodas were added between the 13th and 20th centuries, but severe earthquake damage over time has reduced the number down to only 2,200.

The Bagan Archaeological Zone is viewed as equal with Cambodia's Angkor Wat and, has been rated as one of the world's top hot air ballooning sites along with Cappadocia of Turkey.

Auténticos puzzles en piedra, son más de 200 las caras de Buda en el Templo de Bayón en Angkor (Camboya). Angkor es la región de Camboya que alojó las sucesivas capitales del imperio Jemer, con multitud de monumentos y templos declarados Patrimonio de la Humanidad tras ser recuperados de la selva, es una escapada imprescindible.

Missing moments like these. (Choosing to forget that a few hours later I was enduring a horribly painful 16 hour journey to the nearest hospital for altitude sickness. Fyi - 30 mile bike rides on mountains are a terrible plan.) #adventure #calm #calmbeforethestorm #selectivememories #travels #livingabroad #crave #missit #happy #tibetanborder #friends #temples #china
