Visit Bagan

Introduction

Burma's capital between the 11th and 13th centuries, Bagan (Pagan) is arguably the most stunning, awe-inspiring site in all of South East Asia. Four thousand pagodas of stone and brick, almost half of which remain largely intact, are scattered across an area of more than 40 square kilometres on the eastern banks of the Irrawaddy River. It's an ancient cityscape, which spreads out into the distance, an impossibly beautiful icon of Burma's cultural heritage.
