Welcome to Bagan, Myanmar, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and spiritual center of the country with over 2,000 pagodas, stupas and temples. This golden monument is the Shwezigon Pagoda and was built by King Anawrahta in the early 11th century as a Buddhist temple. Shwezigon is one of the oldest and most impressive monuments in all of Bagan and has a design that has been copied all around the country.
