Planet Myanmar - Inventory of Monuments at Pagan

by Pierre Pichard

Bagan is Myanmar's foremost historical site and was the capital of the first dynasty to unify Myanmar between the 11th and 13th centuries AD. Bagan also ranks as one of the world's most spectacular and important Buddhist places. At Bagan there are over 2,000 religious monuments spread over an area of sixteen square miles.
The Inventory consists of one or several pages for each monument, with a special layout presenting the line drawings, photographs and descriptive text.
