Ken,

Was this taken before or after the earthquake? Bagan is truly a magical locale and you've done a fine job of bringing out the sense of scale of the place . Well done. Cheers,
Andy

Default To grebe1: It depends...

There was an earthquake in 1975, and a number of temples including this one were affected, so indeed repairs were carried out. And of course, we had the 6.8 earthquake 24/8/2016. In this latter instance, the Sulamani Temple suffered the greatest damage. I took these photos in February 2008 on my private tour to Myanmar. I will be uploading more of these temples in the weeks ahead. I had a super guide who had worked for UNESCO or some such organization and spent time in India as an archaeologist.

I should draw your attention to the Internet posting: ibtimes.co.uk/earthquake-damages-historic-buddhist-temples..........
where you can see excellent photos of the damage done to both the Htilominlo and Sulamani Temples in August 2016.

Thanks, Ken
