Bagan: the apex of human civilization


Some years ago I was struck by the beauty and the sheer size, when I saw a documentary of Lonely Planet about Myanmar and Bagan. One thing I knew for sure: “That’s a place I want to go”.

To me Bagan is the apex of a civilization, like for instance Angkor in Cambodia. These people created an amazing 2.224 monuments, dating from Bagan's "Golden Period" (1044 – 1287) with such a simple means.
