Sunrise and hot air balloons over the ancient temples in Bagan, Burma. Bagan is an ancient city hidden deep inside Burma. At the height of the Kingdom of Pagan, the city had over 10,000 Buddhist temples. Today, over 2200 of these are still standing, making it an amazing place to visit.
"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.
