One of the most famous sites in Myanmar is the ancient city of Bagan.  Bagan is generally believed to have been built largely between the 9th and 13th centuries but went into decline following its defeat at the hands of the Mongols.  At the height of the city, it is believed that there existed more than 10,000 temples and pagodas, of which more than 2,000 remain today.  They spread for miles and are truly amazing from either the ground or from the viewpoint at the top of the temples themsleves.
