introducing the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site: Bagan


A significant religious and archaeological site for centuries, Bagan in central Myanmar has now been inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Approved at the World Heritage Committee’s 43rd session this past Saturday, the magical Bagan plains encompass more than 3,500 Buddhist pagodas, temples and monasteries built by Bagan rulers between the 11th and 13th centuries to gain merit.

Anyone who has had the honour of visiting Bagan knows that exploring the picturesque temple-dotted land stays in one’s memory for years to come. Now with the added support and guidance from UNESCO, the noteworthy heritage site will be further protected and authentically restored for even more future generations to enjoy.

Visiting Bagan is best experienced with the help of expert guides and a local touch that brings the ancient land to life.
