Bagan, Myanmar

Bagan, formerly known as Pagan, is an ancient city, therefore, listed in World Heritage Site by Unesco. Located in the Mandalay, Myanmar, it was the capital city of the Pagan Kingdom from 9th to 13th centuries. Under the rule of the Pagan Kingdom, more than 10.000 Buddhist temples and monasteries were built. However, only about 2200 of them survived to that day. Because of a strong earthquake that occurred in 2016, about 400 temples were ruined. Though, there are some efforts by The Bagan Archaeological Department to protect the damaged temples. Today, the visitors are not allowed to enter 33 damaged temples.
