As a must see in Myanmarm Bagan discloses numerous religious structures, architectural buildings and temples. These significant structures are very prominent, which drives the country's emerging tourism industry. Nobody takes a Myanmar tours without a visit to Bagan plain.


People say that there were as much as 4,000 pagodas and stupas once positioned all over the plain of Bagan alone and about 2,200 have remained today.



Although there are severals ways to explore the old plain of Bagan. Horse cart is a unique and leisure way to enjoy the journey through temples. I chose a horse cart tour on my second day in Bagan, the tour started at 10:00 AM. I didn’t give my driver a list of temples that I’d like to visit. (A horse cart riding is offered in every Myanmar luxury trip)

It was an interesting experience that offer peaceful odyssey to the ancient culture of Bagan as well
Aside from seeing the temples, another thing to experience in Myanmar is having thanaka on the face. Thanaka is a yellowish-white cosmetic paste made from ground bark. It is a distinct feature of the culture of the country that is commonly applied to the face and sometimes the arms.

Phyu Phyu has a store outside the temple. She sells some souvenir stuff. Because she was so kind and gladly applied thanaka on my face, I bought a shirt from her store in return. If you have a chance to see her in Mahabodhi Temple, please send my regards to her.



Ananda Phaya remains one of the finest and most beautiful temples in the ancient city.

This temple was built in 1105 during the reign of King Kyanzittha of the Pagan Dynasty. This single story structure was created in a cruciform design with some terraces leading to a small pagoda at the top roofed by an umbrella known as hti, which is the term of the umbrella or top ornament found in almost all pagodas in Myanmar. The temple houses four standing Buddhas, where each one is facing the cardinal direction of East, North, West and South.
