With Bagan sitting near the Sagaing Fault, it’s a surprise that these ancient temples are still standing especially after a magnitude 7.0 earthquake that happened in 46 years ago in July 1975. These 12th and 13th-century ancient Buddhist temples still stretch high near the shores of the Irrawaddy River in Southeast Asia.
In 2019, it has become a UNESCO World Heritage Site after being first nominated by their military government 26 years ago. Today, you’ll see more than 2,200 temples stretched across the 26-square-mile plain of Old Bagan and these include the remains of about 10,000 or more religious monuments constructed during the peak of the Pagan Empire.
