Bupaya pagoda2

Bupaya pagoda, located on the north end of Old Bagan, is one of the earliest monuments on the Bagan Plains.  It’s situated on the Irrawady river and is an Indian-styled stupa.  The original structure was made from brick and fell into the river in the 1975 earthquake.  Since then, it has been reconstructed in concrete and completely gilded.
