Ancient Pagan : Buddhist Plain of Merit
By Donald M. Stadtner, Photographs by Michael Freeman
Pagan, (or Bagan), was the capital of the Kingdom of Pagan, the first real unification for most of what is the modern Burma of today. Dominant between the 11th and 13th centuries it was a peak in Buddhist architecture, much of which remains in one form or another to the present day. Located in central Burma, Pagan still contains thousands of temple sites. Having been a difficult place for tourists to visits for many years we are now seeing the an opening up of the country. The author, a well known scholar on Burma, has selected 33 monuments to highlight to give us a taste of what is there in Pagan.
