The ancient city of Bagan is considered by many to be the most amazing site in all South-east Asia. Bagan lies on the east bank of the Ayeyarwaddy in the dry zone of central Myanmar and is the country's most important historical site. Across 40 sq.km stretching back from the Ayeyarwaddy River stand literally over 4000 stupas, temples and shrines dating back to the 10th century. The pagodas recall Bagan's former greatness. Bagan has also been the fountain head of the people's religion and it was here that Burmese art and architecture flourished in a golden age.
