Balloons over Bagan

Bagan, located on the banks of the AyeyarwadyRiver, is home to the largest and densest concentration of Buddhist temples, pagodas, stupas and ruins in the world with many dating from the 11th and 12th centuries. There are controversies regarding the number of pagodas in Bagan. In 1975 were cataloged 2,217, but in 2014, the country's Ministry of Culture said that the actual number of pagodas was 3312, in contrast to more than 5,000 during the height of its political center. After the earthquake that hit the country in 1975, only bicycles and horse-drawn carriages are allowed to move between the pagodas in order to preserve the temples. The best way to see all of them is flying over the city in a balloon
