Bagan, Nyaung U

Nyaung U is the stop off point for travellers arriving by air, rail or river craft to visit nearby Bagan. The market at Nyaung U is a combination of a wet bazaar for locals and a souvenir and crafts market for tourists.Bagan was the seat of power of the First Empire of Myanmar, founded by King Anawrahta, which extended to the border of present day Cambodia. The thousand-year-old temples of which over two-thousand are left of the original four-thousand are living places of worship maintained through history by public and state funds.The majestic temples and golden pagodas are symbols of the time when Theravada Buddhism first flourished in the country, after King Anawrahta gave it full support in the 11th century. Some scholars think that the temples were made of bricks baked in kilns fired by wood from trees felled around Bagan, which transformed the once lush area to arid land. However, early records described Bagan as already being a hot, dry area. Bricks found at Bagan often bear stamps showing the names of towns or villages many miles away in every direction.
