Boreth Ly Assistant Professor of Art History, University of California, Santa Cruz.
The ancient city of Pagan (or Bagan) was capital of the Pagan Kingdom, and its plains were the site of building over 10,000 Buddhist temples, stupas and monasteries from the 11th to 13th centuries, during a period when several forms of Buddhism coexisted. Over 2200 temples survive and are a top site for visitors. Professor Ly introduces their architectural innovations, exceptional masonry, and sculpture.
