M36***22It is said that it is the most beautiful temple in Bagan. I don't agree with it very much. It feels more luxurious and lacks in connotation. Ananda Temple was built in 1105 AD and was built by King Kyanzittha of the Pagan Dynasty. The whole temple is square. There are four golden Buddha statues in the temple, facing east, west, south and north. Directions.
m34***49The original sacred place for ascending and shooting is now impossible to climb. It has lost a lot of popularity, which is a big pity, but as far as the tower is concerned, it is still good. After two major earthquakes, it has not fallen. There are many small towers around you can take pictures.
Preparation before the trip: Bagan is the most elite historical city, Buddhist cultural site, and tourist attraction in Myanmar. I personally think it is the best place in Myanmar. One must come once in one's life.
Transportation strategy: Bagan is located in central Myanmar, on the left bank of the middle reaches of the Irrawaddy River. The transportation is not particularly convenient. It is definitely not comparable to domestic ones. If you go from Mandalay, the bus is cheaper but the time is longer. Hours one way. It takes more than six hundred gun carts, three to four hours. There is a flight in the morning and evening, and discounts are not expensive. It is more than 300 yuan per person. It is estimated that it will take more than three hours to go to the airport and on the plane. The disadvantage is that the time is fixed. When you arrive at the Bagan Bus Station, if you go to the hotel, you have to pay extra. Basically, the taxi does not use the meter, and more than 10,000 local currency can be handled.
Local must punch cards: There are hundreds of Bagan pagodas. If you really want to visit the main pagodas, it will take two days. Tourists may not remember it. It’s better to pick some key points, such as Damma Yangji Pagoda (the largest brick pagoda), Ananda Temple (the most beautiful), Dabynyu Temple (the tallest), and Ruishantuo Pagoda (this can be climbed to watch the sunset, but now It’s no longer allowed to climb), there are many unknown pagodas with different styles, like the Longmen Grottoes. There are various Buddha statues inside, including standing Buddha, sitting Buddha, reclining Buddha, some are brick towers, some are stone towers, and Some are Shwedagon Pagodas. For all these pagodas, you must take off your shoes and follow the customs. It's just that the foot hurts a bit.
Food guide: The local dishes are more oily. To be honest, there is no recommendation, which can not be compared with Thailand.
Shopping guide: The most famous local ones are puppets, lacquerware and sand paintings. There are shopping spots in front of every major temple. You can buy it in the hotel, but it's not expensive.
Journey experience: It is said that the 480 temples of the Southern Dynasties are very magnificent. Today, when I go to Nanjing, there are only a few remaining. There are still more than 4,000 pagodas in Bagan at the moment, of various sizes, mostly from the 10th to the 12th century. It has been in disrepair for many years. In the past few years, tourists could climb the tower to watch the sunrise. In recent years, government management has strengthened and the tower cannot be climbed. Although some scenery is missing, it does protect the world heritage
Little Tips: Bagan is a great place. I have never seen a place with so many towers. It is very sacred. Although the locals are poor, the people are good. Maybe the Buddhist countries are very simple. Be sure to respect the living habits of the locals and prepare to write local currency of ¥1000 face value. It's okay to tip some.
小龙包包This tower is beautiful, guarding the people passing by in peace and tranquility, with a sense of independence. If you go to Bagan, don’t miss it. There are some towers around you can climb to the top of the tower from the stairs inside, and then look at other pagodas from a distance. Waiting for the sunset and enjoying the pleasant time on the journey...
M36***63The entrance of the Sulamani Pagoda and the main temple are connected by a very long passage. This passage, which is also extremely hot in the afternoon of the rainy season, invisibly deepens the tall and majestic image of the entire pagoda, presumably it plays a sacred role for the visitors to come in. Very beautiful and spectacular!
M36***12Silomminra Temple was built by King Silomminra in 1218 and is the last Burmese-style temple in Bagan. A hawker selling sand paintings said that he knew that there was a small tower with a nice view to climb up, without money or buying his things, so we followed.

Bagan, telling the history of the stupa, showing the real market
A few famous cities in Myanmar,
I am most impressed is the Bagan.
Bagan is more well known because of the hot air balloon,
riding a hot air balloon, rising with the sun,
gradually reaching the sky,
from a high altitude overlooking the tranquility of a stupa.
Bagan is not only the historical city of Myanmar,
is also the site of Buddhist culture.
There are about 2,000 pagodas and Buddhist ruins here.
Passing through between the stupas,
The most felt is the majesty of history.
Each stupa looks the same, but the
consistent shape makes this Vantaa City
and every stupa also contains The devout wish of the believers.
In a place full of historical atmosphere,
feel different moods and experiences,
listen to your inner heart in a quiet,
also hope that your wish will one day can be realised.
Every trip my favorite
is actually a place where you can feel and enjoy your trip.
Myanmar Market in Myanmar is the most prosperous place in Bagan,
is the distribution center for daily life supplies for local people.
There are also many shops selling souvenirs.
It is highly recommended to come here to experience the true life of Myanmar.
A variety of unique and versatile products,
from ordinary daily necessities,
to lacquer ware representing Myanmar handmade art,
bowl, pot, jewelry box. ..
There are also beautifully designed dolls, masks,
and Burmese costumes that must be owned,
numerical colors, patterns for you to choose,
rectangle piece of cloth,
only Need to be simply around the waist,
has become a very exotic long skirt.
everyone's face is painted with a creamy thing,
I also tried it,
originally called Thanahka Tanaka,
is Myanmar's unique natural plant skin care products,
with sunscreen, beauty effects ~
Known as "the fingertips, all of them are stupas", Bagan is really not a name. In the old Bagan, just like being in the kingdom of the stupa, all modern civilizations are incompatible with it. Ananda Pahto is the first temple we visited. It is hidden in a market. If it is not the driver, we will not find it. There are many vendors selling books, postcards and oil paintings outside the temple, but this prevents us from visiting. It has four 9-meter-high Buddha statues on the four sides facing from the center, all made of solid teak. The Buddha statue in the south is quite popular, because the tour guide said that if you stand next to the donation box in front of the original statue, the Buddha's face will look like a sad expression; if you stand a little farther, the Buddha looks more like a happy look. . therefore. We also deliberately confirmed the commentary of the tour guide.
It is the messenger of peace, marrying the bridge of friendship between the Burmese and Mon people; it is the great Ruishan Tuo, the fireworks that will never be annihilated in people's hearts. Compared with the famous Yangon Shwedagon Pagoda, the name of Ruishan Tuo is rarely known. However, this stupa is actually one meter higher than the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon. The two golden umbrellas at the top of the stupa symbolize the peace between the Burmese and Mon people. Under the
Rishan Tuo Pagoda, there is a museum with many precious and precious Burmese artifacts and detailed pictures showing the ancient history of the pagoda. Here, you can travel through the long river of history and visit the mysterious history of Myanmar.
Once again, I will pay homage to the great Ruishantu Temple. Whether it is the towering ladder, the exquisite clay sculpture, the great pagoda, and the charming lights under the night, it is deeply in my mind.
everyday of Bagan people
Bagan is an ancient city of Myanmar, a Buddhist cultural site, and a famous tourist destination. It is located in the middle of the country and is located on the left bank of the middle of the Irrawaddy River. Located in the middle of the Irrawaddy River flowing through the central part of Myanmar, it is the center of the Burmese.
The urban area retains many Buddhist pagodas and Buddhist temples built in various historical periods in Myanmar. The architectural art of the Buddhist stupa is the epitome of Myanmar's ancient architectural art and is a precious historical and cultural heritage of Myanmar. Most of Bagan has a tropical climate. Like other Southeast Asian countries, it is divided into three seasons: the hot season from March to May, the rainy season from June to October, and the cool season from November to February. Season is the best travel season.
Yanliangwu Market is a local farmer's market with stalls selling a variety of vegetables, fruits, fresh, dry goods and daily necessities, as well as a small number of clothing and souvenir stalls. Its also very interesting to come here for a walk in the morning, feel the local customs and bargain with the vendors.
There is one thing that should be bought in Bagan. If you like to collect some, it is the famous lacquer ware of Bagan. Even tourists from other parts of Myanmar will come to the Nangwu market to Taobao, but they will bargain than us. The gates at the scenic spots are all handmade by them! The price is around 30! ! ! Very beautiful, you thought they were all made in Datong, but they didn't expect them to be carved on the edge of the temple to concentrate on God. It is both a businessman and a full-scale craftsman.
For example, a business card case is the kind of black inlaid copper wire that is not painted on bamboo basically 3000-4000 Myanmar dollars. The stall owner of Niangwu Market - mostly a woman - likes to say this when bargaining: You buy me something is to give me "lucky money". Later, I found out that some Laos also said this. Usually when they start to say this, they mean that they are willing to make a deal. I just hope that you can give more, but it is actually not needed. If you don't plan to give more, you don't have to let the price go. Congratulations, take the baby home!
Built in the 12th century AD by King Alaungsithu, the Dabinu Temple is the tallest of all buildings in the southwest of the Ananda Temple in Bagan Temple. It is one of the earliest buildings in Bagan, Ananda. The temple is also known as the "Bugan Twin Towers".
Dabin New Temple Tower as the second largest pagoda in Bagan, each layer has different functions, the first two floors were once the residence of the monks, the third floor is the meditation space, and the fourth floor is the library. The fifth floor is the Buddha who passes the aura of heaven and earth and takes the essence of all things.
Each window in the Dabin New Temple tower corresponds to a golden Buddha. Many red paints on the surface of the platform have gradually fallen. The charm of the Buddha has not been reduced by half, and it still shines brightly. .
