The best places to live in Bagan, Myanmar
Situated on the shores of the Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) River, Bagan is a mystical place with foggy levels that produce the greatest concentrations of buddhistic monasteries, stupas as well as couples in the run. It is more of an "area" than a city and encompasses about 26 sqkm. New Bagan, the old Bagan and the new center, are the best places to spend the night in Bagan if you want to be in the middle of the magick of Monument.
Several of Bagan's fine buildings date from the eleventh century, and the area has expanded over the years. Photographs of Bagan show many towers and cupolas - like reversed ice-cream cone, but each memorial has its own form and meaning for Buddhist thought. A part of the village's charm is the magnificent temple reds, which are actually the uncovered bricks that are now seen as much of the initial piece has been scratched.
Often likened to Angkor, the major distinction is that Bagan's memorials are scattered over a much larger area, although they are not buried in the jungles, so your gaze is always full of great shrines, stupas as well as couples. With its golden panelling, Ananda Pahto is one of the tallest, 170 feet high, and best conserved of Bagan's memorials.
