Founded in 849 AD
it became the capital of the first unified Kingdom and the first multinational Union of
Myanmar in 1044 AD. 42 square kilometres of open land, sited on the east bank of the famed
Ayeyarwady River, covered by 5,000 mysterious and magnificent stupas and hollow pagodas of
a bygone era, make Pagan one of the wonders of the world. Here lies a great monument to
one of Myanmars brilliant eras. Today it is a rich and premier archaeological site
that ofters a rich heritage from a twelfth century empire. A panoramic view of this land
at sunset will leave you with a lingering sense of awe and wonder.
