Report #022 – Bagan, Myanmar

Scott the Dot‘s latest postcard is truly a sight to behold!

Greetings from Bagan!

Wish you were here, surrounded by a mesmerizing landscape dotted with thousands of ancient temples. Bagan is a place of wonder, where history and spirituality come alive!

I’m standing amidst a sea of majestic temples, rising tall against the blue sky. Did you know that Bagan was once the capital of the mighty Kingdom of Pagan? It flourished between the 9th and 13th centuries, and during its peak, over 10,000 temples, pagodas, and monasteries adorned the Bagan plains.

Exploring Bagan, you’ll discover temples that have stood the test of time and experienced the rise and fall of empires. Inside, you’ll find Buddha images and exquisite murals depicting scenes from Buddhist scriptures and the daily life of the people. It’s like stepping into a living time capsule, where the past and present intertwine.

Next week – another Scott the Dot Anecdote!
