Snapshot Sunday: Marveling at Bagan’s Ancient Temples

Bagan
The Temples at Bagan - Mandalay Region, Burma

They may not be as well-known as Angkor Wat or the Machu Picchu, but the Temples of Bagan make up one of the world’s best archaeological sites. Built between the 11th and 13th centuries, just over 2,000 of the original 4,000 structures survive today. Very few of them are regularly visited, so you can hire a bike and marvel at their antiquity without a tour group in sight.
