About 13,000 temples once coloured the plains of Bagan, Myanmar, in a small space of only 42 sq km. Most built between the 11th and 12th centuries, the golden age abruptly ended when Anawratha’s kingdom was invaded by the Mongols in 1287. Around 2200 still remain today, which still provide for a great challenge to find the perfect photo spot.
Passing Bagan, the town of a thousand temples, once more. Visible on the left is the Dhammayazika Pagoda (built in 1196) under repair from the earthquake that shook Myanmar in 2016. Amongst the temples on the plains, often locals can be spotted guiding their herds of cattle.
