The 2200 pagodas of Bagan in Myanmar (former Burma) belong to the most impresives archeological sites on earth. Although the site was nominated as a UNESCO cultural heritage in 2002 the restoration process is still ongoing and very difficult.
During the heydays of the Pagan kingdom (11th-13th century AD) thousands of temples were built as symbol of the royal power.
Only when we rose over the plains in a hot air balloon I was able to understand the huge dimension of the site. Countless temples were stretching out up to the horizon in the morning fog.
