Magnificent Temples of Bagan

Bagan boasts no less than 4000 temples and pagodas. Particularly at dawn and dusk it is a spectacular sight. The most celebrated such as Shwezigone Pagoda, Hti-Lo-Min-Lo Temple, Gubyaukgyi and my personal favourite Ananda are best explored with a guide. Their imagery is so vivid and the structures so magnificent that every guide has something to add in their description of Buddhist symbolism or their angle on the patronage, history and construction.
