From 1044 to 1287, Bagan was the capital as well as the political, economic and cultural nerve center of the Pagan Empire. Over the course of 250 years, Bagan's rulers and their wealthy subjects constructed over 10,000 religious monuments (approximately 1000 stupas, 10,000 small temples and 3000 monasteries)[4] in an area of 104 square kilometres (40 sq mi) in the Bagan plains.I took this picture during the sunrise in September 2012 .
