Research continues for preservation of ancient complexes

Like the Hsin Phyu Shin monastic complex, research will be continued to discover the rest of the complexes for preservation in the Bagan Ancient Cultural Heritage Zone, said the Department of Archaeology and National Museum’s director for the Bagan Branch, U Kyaw Myo Win.
The restoration of pagodas and temples and the repair of ancient lakes are now underway, he said.
“With this year’s budget, repair of pagodas and renovation of exhibition halls at Htidawmindaw and Culamani temples have been carried out. Restoration of lakes made of ancient tombs used in the Bagan Period has been carried out at the same time. At present, our department is carrying out regular work. And we have planned to discover the remaining ancient complexes, like the Hsin Phyu Shin monastic complex, through research,” he said.
In Bagan, there are a lot of cactuses; because of this, cleaning works have been carried out by diving into 11 areas and clearing banyan trees, naturally grown around pagodas and inside and on top of cave temples, has been carried out.
Currently, Bagan is not seeing a massive influx of visitors from around the country like Thadingyut and Thingyan. However, there are still visitors to some extent, such as family vacations and student excursions, as the rain level is low in the ancient cultural region, he said.
“This is school season, so visitor arrival has still been low. But there are family vacations and excursion groups,” he said.
In the last Thadingyut period, visitor arrival to Bagan was enormously significant. Even hotels were full. Therefore, it is expected that the visitor arrival will be prominent in the coming Thadingyut. — MT/ZS/ED
