Bagan-NyaungU Ancient Cultural Zone packed with pilgrims on Pyatho Full Moon Day

Pilgrams are pictured at pagodas in Bagan-NyaungU Ancient Cultural Zone.

Bagan-NyaungU Ancient Cultural Zone was alive with the visit of domestic tourists and pilgrims to famous pagodas and religious buildings on the full moon day of Pyatho, according to the board of trustees of Buu Pagoda.
There are still more than 3,000 ancient pagodas and religious buildings in NyaungU Township, Mandalay Region. Mural paintings and ancient architecture are worth seeing and one cannot be tired of making observations in Bagan, said U Toe Maung, a pilgrim from the Ngamyarlay Village, Yesakyo.
Bagan is always crowded with pilgrims from all parts of the country and tourists from abroad. It is breathtaking to see ancient buildings altogether in one large place. Not far from the Bagan-NyaungU, there is Mount Popa which is a must-visit for international tourists. Bagan is the region that the entire Myanmar nation must value and preserve, commented Ma Htet Ekari, a pilgrim from Mandalay Region.
Parking is difficult on the full moon day of Pyatho at famous pagodas due to the large number of pilgrims and tourists that visited the Buddha Pujaniya festival of the Ananda Temple and the famous pagodas in Bagan.— Ko Kyemon/CT
