Magical Bagan – full day tourBagan, Central Myanmar
Time:08:00 am - 06:30 pm
- Private tour with English speaking local guide
You will be picked up by DISCOVERY Bagan guide at your hotel or at Bagan airport for a journey into the Ancient Kingdoms of Bagan. The Dhamayazeka Zedi is our first visit, providing panoramic views of the temple studded plains of Bagan. We continue to the Archaeological Museum and the gold gilded Shwezigon Stupa, purported to contain a holy tooth relic of the Buddha.
Not far from the stupa, the Myingaba Gu Byaukgyi Temple is a sight to behold, housing Bagan’s best preserved mural paintings of the Buddha’s Jataka reincarnations.
Next, we learn how Bagan’s famous lacquer ware crafts are produced in Myingaba village, and then visit Htilominlo Temple to learn how Burmese sand paintings are created.
The day’s temple tour ends with a visit to the beautifully symmetric and majestic Ananda Temple with its four standing Buddha images that seem to gaze at the viewer with fixed serenity wherever the viewer stands.
For sunset, we take a Bullock or horse cart ride around the temples and climb to a viewing terrace of a temple offering unparalleled photo opportunities of one of the richest archaeological treasures in Southeast Asia as the sun dips behind the temple ruins (weather permitting).
