Temple Sunrise by AndyMumford Temple Sunrise by AndyMumford
Another image from a wonderful sunrise at the temples of Bagan, Burma.
The plain of Bagan has around 2000 temples scattered over a few square kilometers, and in the morning, mist rolls access the plain and the neighboring River Ayerwaddy, making each temple appear like an individual island in the fog.
It really is a remarkable scene.
The majority of the temples were built between the 11th and 13th century, and according to various sources, at Bagan's peak there were around 10 000 temples, stupas and monasteries built in the 100 square kilometer area.  Doing the basic math, that's basically starting a new temple every 9 days for a period of 250 years, which is  a lot of building!
Numbers aside though, our first morning watching the sunrise across Bagan was a truly unforgettable experience, it's easily one of the most amazing places on the planet.
