BAGAN, MYANMAR

site maker

The ancient city of Bagan, in the Mandalay region of Myanmar, is an area renowned for its number of Buddhist temples, edifices and pagodas. During the height of the kingdom of Bagan between the 9th and 13th centuries, over ten thousand temples were built on the plains of Bagan, flanked by the Irrawaddy River.

Today, the area is designated the “Bagan Archaeological Zone”. It is one of the richest archaeological sites in Asia. The remains of several thousand of these structures still exist, in varying states of conservation.

The architecture of the buildings is magnificent, and shows off the artistic and engineering achievements of ancient Myanmar craftsmen. Bagan is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

During 3 field campaigns between 2017-2018, the Zamani Project documented 12 monuments in Bagan, including Kyauk-ku-umin (154); Kubyauk-gyi (298), Tha-peik-hmauk-gu-hpaya (744); Sula-mani-hu-hpaya (748), Monument 1053; Sein-nyet-ama (1085); Sein-nyet-nyima (1086); Naga-yon-hpaya (1192); Loka-ok-shaung (1467); Than-daw-kya (1592); Ananda Monastery; and the City Gate of old Bagan (Tharabha Gate).
