Archeological / Cultural

Myanmar lies between two great civilizations, India and China, but it has developed its own distinctive culture. Sri-ksetra, an ancient city of Pyu era, existed during the period of A.D 300 to A.D 1000, and is 700 years prior to the existence of Bagan. Pyadalin cave (Stone Age) is one of the 11,000 years old cave in the world. Mural paintings on the cave wall are reflecting their way of life at the Age of contemporary to prehistoric paintings in Northern France, Spain, Indonesia and Malaysia.
Myanmar’s most magnificent temple ruins of course those at Bagan (Pagan), the country’s No 1 tourist attraction and for decades the most popular photo subject for tour brochures and posters. Nearby Salay boasts a little-known set of ruins from the same period, easily visited as a day trip from Bagan.
Mandalay is surrounded by the ancient cities of Inwa (Ava), Amarapura, Sagaing and Mingun, all easily visited on day trips. Early stupas (Buddhist religious monuments) at the former Pyu capital of Thayekhittaya (Sir Ksetra) near Pyay (Prome) rank fourth in architectural interest and are the most accessible of all the ancient capitals from Yangon. Additional Pyu ruins can be seen at the more obscure – and more off-the-beaten-track – sites of Beikthano and Hanlin. MraukU, 15th century ancient of Rakhine Kingdom is known for its old temples with wall painting. Myanmar is full of Archaeological and Cultural Sites in various parts of the country. Travelling through the archaeological sites is just like a visit from one age to another and the views along the way are exquisite. The following are the most well known cultural sites.
