Angkor Wat


Bagan, also spelled Pagan, on the banks of the Ayerwaddy River in Myanmar (Burma), is home to the largest area of Buddhist temples, pagodas, stupas and ruins in the world - many dating to the 11th and 12th centuries. The shape and construction of each building is highly significant in Buddhism with each component part taking on spiritual meaning.
