Bagan was the capital of the first unified empire of Anawrahta and was founded in 849AD. Bagan is the richest archaeology site in Asia famous for its more than 3000 religious monuments spreading in 42 sq km. It enjoys world-wide renown for the ancient pagodas, temples and other religious buildings around it.
The journey begins with a visit to an elevated temple with spectacular views over the surrounding plains. This is the perfect introduction to the grandeur and scope of Bagan’s architecture. Explore the most significant pagodas and temples of Bagan including Shwezigon Pagoda built by King Anawrahta in the early 11th as a religious shrine. Continue onto Ananda Temple: a whitewashed masterpiece of Mon architecture with four standing Buddhas and the adjacent brick monastery with the beautiful, well-preserved 18th century murals. Final visit Sulamani Temple. Though somewhat damaged by the 1975 earthquake, it is still one of the Bagan’s most attractive temples and is known as the “Crowning Jewel”. Transfer back to hotel.
