Shwezigon Pagoda Bagan

Bagan is the ancient city of Myanmar and

once considered THE top sight in Asia by Lonely Planet founder Tony Wheeler.

Unfortunately, the UNESCO has tried but failed to make Bagan a world heritage site and is now being carelessly restored by the military junta.

This is one of the 1,000 of temples in the area.

The pagoda, built in 1102, is believed to enshrine a bone and tooth of Gautama Buddha.
