Thank you!
From the 9th to 13th centuries, Bagan was the capital of the Kingdom of Pagan, the first kingdom to unify the regions that would later constitute modern Myanmar. During the kingdom's height between the 11th and 13th centuries, over 10,000 Buddhist temples, pagodas and monasteries were constructed in the Bagan plains alone, of which the remains of over 2200 temples and pagodas still survive to the present day.

  • Gu meaning "cave" in Myanmar. This temple is known for its wall paintings depicting scenes from the Jatakas (life stories of the Buddha). To distinguish it from the temple of the same name in Myinkaba, this monument is sometimes called 'Wetkyi-in Gubyaukgyi'. View slide

Each one sits under a different tree, for each enlightenment took place under a different species.
  • Many of the larger pagodas in Bagan had multi-level terraces, which were possible to climb by going up steep stairs. The top most terrace of the Bu Le Thi pagoda had one of the best overlooking views of major temples in Old Bagan and Myinkaba
  • Mingala Zedi Pagoda. King Narathiha-pate built it in A.D. 1277 on the model of Shwezigon Pagoda. The only difference between it and Shwezigon is that it was built upon a brick platform.
  • Mingala Zedi Pagoda Bu Le Thi pagoda
  • Mingalar Zedi Pagoda or the “Blessing Stupa” lies close to the Ayeyarwaddy River Bank. The Pagoda was built in 1277 by King Narathihapati. It was the very last of the large late period monuments to be built before the kingdom’s decline, thus representing the final flowering of Bagan’s architectural skills. It took six whole years to complete the construction of this great monument.
  • Salay is a colorful old religious center in Central Myanmar. It is about 1 ½ hours drive south of Bagan. It is famous for spectacular woodcarvings monastery “Yoke-Sone-Kyaung” built in AD 1882.
  • Entrance monastery “Yoke-Sone-Kyaung”
  • monastery “Yoke-Sone-Kyaung”
  • The 19th century wooden monastery Yoke Sone Kyaung is famous for its exquisite wooden carvings.
  • Teak is the common name for the tropical hardwood tree species Tectona grandis  and its wood products. The species is placed in the family Lamiaceae. Tectona grandis is a large, deciduous tree that is dominant in mixed hardwood forests. It has small, fragrant white flowers and papery leaves that are often hairy on the lower surface. It is sometimes known as the "Burmese Teak".
  • Teak wood has a leather-like smell when it is freshly milled. Teak timber is particularly valued for its durability and water resistance, and is used for boat building, exterior construction, veneer, furniture, carving, turnings, and other small wood projects. Tectona grandis is native to south and southeast Asia, mainly India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Burma, but is naturalized and cultivated in many countries in Africa and the Caribbean. Burma accounts for nearly one third of the world's total teak production
  • The Yoke-Sone-Kyaung Monastery is a Burmese Cultural Heritage site and its buildings are all fabulously decorated with religious wood carvings
