Pagodas under a warm sunset in Bagan, Myanmar 15 May 2017
About this photo
See the warm sunset which turns the ancient Buddhist pagodas to golden structures on Insight Guides' Myanmar's Ancient Treasures trip. Observe how the light touches the spires of the 2,200 remaining temples and pagodas, making them stand out against the dark foliage and misty atmosphere that lie across the plains of Bagan in the Mandalay region of Myanmar.
The temples and pagodas rise from the flat land which was once the capital of the Pagan Kingdom, from the 9th to the 13th Century. Over 10,000 temples, pagodas and monestries once covered this land; now the Bagan Archelogical Zone.
