Bagan

In-between the 11th and 13th century, Bagan flourished as the capital of the 250-year old Pagan Kingdom. During this time the city’s rulers are said to have built over 10,000 religious monuments, including gold-gilded temples, stupas and monasteries. As a result of repeat Mongol invasions and a series of devastating earthquakes, Bagan’s prominence quickly faded, meaning that the site you see today is surprisingly a shadow of its former glory.
