So we come to the end of our wander around these smaller stupas in Bagan. For me, this was the highlight of our visit to Myanmar and if I ever return to Bagan, I’ll be heading off to explore more of these stupas. I’ll let the hoards check out the larger temples such as Shwezigon Pagoda, Htilominlo Temple and Ananda Temple, while I spend my time at these.
Since we were the only ones around, this is the one location we saw a small snake sunning itself at one of these stupas. It disappeared off into the dry grass as soon as it felt our vibrations. Proof that no one comes here.
Apologies again for the shadowing in some the photos, the sun was dropping due to it being late afternoon and casting a lot of shadow.

The stupas took a lot of money and energy to build. Do they relate generally to a particular era?
They date from the 10th-13th centuries – they had some serious building work going on during that short time period!
Thank you. It is a wonder they have survived, Your posts have piqued by interest in the history of that area.
Glad you enjoyed it 🙂
