The locals are a few of the nicest, friendliest I’ve satisfied ever. everybody we asked willingly equipped us with the much-needed directions (which we may or may not have remembered) that led us to the a few of the site’s major temples.

Major temples, eh? Yes, major temples, since not all temples were produced equal. (Some are not even temples.) These are usually the biggest as well as most historically considerable (not always, though). The drawback is, these are likewise the most crowded.

Remember: make sure you wear clothes that cover your shoulders as well as knees, as well as eliminate shoes as well as socks when you enter. These sites are sacred to the locals so please respect their culture.

Here are pictures of seven of Bagan’s most prominent temples as well as pagodas with a bit bit more information just to keep your expectations in check.
