Temples of Bagan, Myanmar (Burma) The temples also known as "gu" were inspired by the rock caves of Buddhist. They were larger multi-storied buildings that one could enter. They were places of worships that included richly frescoed corridors with sacred shrines and images that could be worshipped.
"Bagan Temples in Bagan, Burma." -- or alternately, "Pagan Temples in Myanmar," but the names are mixed; Pagan and Burma are the old names. Between the 11th and 13th centuries, there were over 10,000 Buddhist stupas and temples on this plain...now "only" 2200 survive.
