Bagan is an ancient city in the Mandalay region of central Myanmar. It consists mainly of temples and ruins, and is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful places in Asia, as well as an equal to Angkor Watt, Cambodia.

The city was founded in the 2nd Century AD according to Burmese lore, but many scholars believe it to have actually been founded in the 9th Century. From the 9th - 13th Century, the city was the capitol of the Kingdom of Pagan.

Today, Bagan is a major tourist attraction, known for its exotic beauty, ruins, history, temples, religious schools, and hot air ballooning.
