Ancient Pagoda
m34***49The original sacred place for ascending and shooting is now impossible to climb. It has lost a lot of popularity, which is a big pity, but as far as the tower is concerned, it is still good. After two major earthquakes, it has not fallen. There are many small towers around you can take pictures.

嘟嘟鱼【Destination Guide】 Preparation before the trip: Bagan is the most elite historical city, Buddhist cultural site, and tourist attraction in Myanmar. I personally think it is the best place in Myanmar. One must come once in one's life. Transportation strategy: Bagan is located in central Myanmar, on the left bank of the middle reaches of the Irrawaddy River. The transportation is not particularly convenient. It is definitely not comparable to domestic ones. If you go from Mandalay, the bus is cheaper but the time is longer. Hours one way. It takes more than six hundred gun carts, three to four hours. There is a flight in the morning and evening, and discounts are not expensive. It is more than 300 yuan per person. It is estimated that it will take more than three hours to go to the airport and on the plane. The disadvantage is that the time is fixed. When you arrive at the Bagan Bus Station, if you go to the hotel, you have to pay extra. Basically, the taxi does not use the meter, and more than 10,000 local currency can be handled. Local must punch cards: There are hundreds of Bagan pagodas. If you really want to visit the main pagodas, it will take two days. Tourists may not remember it. It’s better to pick some key points, such as Damma Yangji Pagoda (the largest brick pagoda), Ananda Temple (the most beautiful), Dabynyu Temple (the tallest), and Ruishantuo Pagoda (this can be climbed to watch the sunset, but now It’s no longer allowed to climb), there are many unknown pagodas with different styles, like the Longmen Grottoes. There are various Buddha statues inside, including standing Buddha, sitting Buddha, reclining Buddha, some are brick towers, some are stone towers, and Some are Shwedagon Pagodas. For all these pagodas, you must take off your shoes and follow the customs. It's just that the foot hurts a bit. Food guide: The local dishes are more oily. To be honest, there is no recommendation, which can not be compared with Thailand. Shopping guide: The most famous local ones are puppets, lacquerware and sand paintings. There are shopping spots in front of every major temple. You can buy it in the hotel, but it's not expensive. Journey experience: It is said that the 480 temples of the Southern Dynasties are very magnificent. Today, when I go to Nanjing, there are only a few remaining. There are still more than 4,000 pagodas in Bagan at the moment, of various sizes, mostly from the 10th to the 12th century. It has been in disrepair for many years. In the past few years, tourists could climb the tower to watch the sunrise. In recent years, government management has strengthened and the tower cannot be climbed. Although some scenery is missing, it does protect the world heritage Little Tips: Bagan is a great place. I have never seen a place with so many towers. It is very sacred. Although the locals are poor, the people are good. Maybe the Buddhist countries are very simple. Be sure to respect the living habits of the locals and prepare to write local currency of ¥1000 face value. It's okay to tip some.

Ancient Pagoda
M30***26The second largest tower in Bagan, most of the stairs have been sealed, and no access to the tower is allowed. Many windows have been opened in the tower to facilitate lighting. Ta Bingyu Pagoda was built in 1144 and is the tallest tower in Bagan. It has two floors and is 66 meters high. The huge appearance makes people look up and awe. The top of the tower was wrapped and appeared to be damaged.
Sulamani Guphaya Temple
4.6/5

Temple
M36***63The entrance of the Sulamani Pagoda and the main temple are connected by a very long passage. This passage, which is also extremely hot in the afternoon of the rainy season, invisibly deepens the tall and majestic image of the entire pagoda, presumably it plays a sacred role for the visitors to come in. Very beautiful and spectacular!
Gawdawpalin Temple

Ancient Pagoda
Historical Site
多多Gawdawpalin Pahto (Gawdawpalin Pahto) Gawdawpalin means "the altar expressing the heart of reverence" in Burmese. With a height of 55 meters, the temple is the second tallest pagoda in Bagan and the most representative pagoda in the late Bagan period. It was King Narapatisithu who ordered the construction to begin, but he died before it was completed. Later, his son King Htilominlo took over. The two-story temple was not built until 1227. Jiadepalin Temple and Dabinyu Temple have very similar architectural patterns and shapes. Here, you can donate 500 Kyat to light up a birthday lantern for your own week. This is our last stop in Bagan. There are some dazzlings, but fortunately, the pagodas are selected representative ones, plus their own wonderful stories, so they are quite clear in their heads.
