Heavy Rains Damage Bagan Temples
Thursday, October 31, 2013
BAGAN, MYANMAR—Torrential rains have reportedly damaged several ancient pagodas in the ancient city of Bagan. “It’s due to weak points of the original architectural style. [Erosion] used to occur there every rainy season. But [the affected area] is not very big, just a foot wide in damage,” said an unnamed official from the Bagan Archaeological Research Department about the damage to the red-brick Htilominlo Pagoda, which was constructed in the early thirteenth century.
