The first phase of cleaning creepers and climbing plants which can damage pagodas in Bagan‘s ancient cultural zone has completed to a significant percentage, according to U Kyaw Myo Win, director of the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Culture (Bagan Division).

11 areas have been demarcated for the climbers to clean, withclimate change and heavy rain being responsible for their proliferation.

There are 11 areas to be cleaned in the upper parts. Most of them have been completed. The first priority is given to the pagodas on the left and right of the three main roads into Bagan. Then, we continued to clean the upper parts of the pagodas in the forest,” he said.

There are four steps in cleaning, including cutting the plants, injecting chemical fluid into the roots to kill them and closing the holes where the roots entered to prevent rain.

“Some climbing plants dry out in the summer and detach themselves. The moss also comes off. Since the banyan trees are dangerous, we clean them first,” he added.
