Remembering Bagan

Remembering Bagan

Bagan, an ancient city in Myanmar dates back to the 9th century. Over 10,000 Buddhist pagodas were constructed here in the 11th century, of which 200 survived to the present day. Unfortunately, the earthquake on 25th August 2016 is reported to have damaged over 200 of them.

 

In this series, I remember my visit to the region in the year 2012. We perched ourselves atop Myengon Pagoda and patiently waited for dawn to break.

 

I hope these sea of pagodas have survived the earthquake.

    At the dawn the sun appears slowly with its treasure of gold in the horizon. It sprinkles it on the earth with joy . The sprinkling adore the tall things on the earth with glow .
    Here Amardeep Singh ji presents that golden magic of morning sun through his hypnotizing snaps.
    He knows to put souls in the pictures .
    Regards to him and thanks for sharing it with us all.
