Bagan is an ancient city that was the capital of the first Burmese empire. As the heart of Burma during ancient times, Bagan serves as home to temples, pagodas and monasteries built from the 11th to the 13th century. Today, there are still more than 2200 temples and pagodas, a tiered towers with multiple eaves, most of which were built by the ancient kings and leaders of Burma. The scale of Bagan can be overwhelming with its thousands of monuments as far as the eye can see. Some are very well maintained and have been restored, while others are neglected and overgrown with vegetation. They combine to form one of the richest archaeological sites in Asia and provide views quite unlike anywhere else on earth. The templates are placed at the Bagan Archaeological Zone with area about 100 square kilometers.
