Shwezigon Paya, Bagan

Dawn greets the Shwezigon Paya in Bagan.

I spent the day on an inexpensive rented bicycle, and covered perhaps 30km exploring the expanse of both maintained and abandoned temples in the area.

The government has succeeded at preventing settlement of most areas where temples are nearby, and so many of the 800- to 1000-year old structures are unmolested.
