Myanmar (Burma) - Temples of Bagan (Chapter)
This is the Temples of Bagan chapter from Lonely Planet’s Myanmar (Burma) guidebook.
Marco Polo described Bagan as 'one of the finest sights in the world'. Despite centuries of neglect, looting, erosion and regular earthquakes, not to mention questionable restoration, this temple-studded plain remains a remarkably impressive and unforgettable vision.
