Another Visit to Bagan
Friday, December 1, 2017 at 11:56AM

I re-visited Bagan (this time with Elysa) on my recent trip to Myanmar. The ruins still extend all over the landscape, they are still breathtaking, and this is still the best place in the world to ride bikes and look at ancient Buddhist temples. But, the 2016 earthquake did produce some noticeable damage. Like the broken stupa shown on the right in the photo above. Or, even worse, the Shwesandaw Pagoda was severely damaged and you can't climb up it anymore. No more beautiful sunset pictures from this iconic temple until it gets repaired (See Sunset at Bagan).
