Bagan, Max Ridgway - guitar, recorded on July 7, 2015. Bagan is an ancient city in Burma, the capital of the Kingdom of Pagan, which flourished between the 11th and 13th centuries. During this period, Bagan's wealthy rulers constructed thousands of religious monuments, including stupas, small temples, and monasteries, all within a 40-square mile area on the Burmese plains. The religion practiced here was fluid, syncretic, and unorthodox, a blend of Theravada, Mahayana, and Tantric Buddhism, along with elements from various Hindu schools as well as native animist traditions.
