A hot air balloon provides a view of the temples as it hovers over Bagan in Myanmar on February 4, 2014. Between the 11th and 13th centuries, Bagan in Mandalay province in Myanmar was the kingdom's capital, one of the most important centres for learning in Asia, if not the world. The kings and rulers built thousands of temples, more than 3,000 of which are still standing today. The city is one of the Myanmar's most treasured religious sites and attracts hundreds of visitors a day. But over the past 20 years, many of the temples have been renovated and now bear little resemblance to their original structures.
