More than 2,000 Buddhist monuments still stand on the archaeological site of Pagan, capital of Myanmar from 1044 until the Mongol invasion in 1287. This major eight-volume work by Pierre Richard is the first complete inventory of the treasures to be found at this exceptional site.
Pages are dedicated to each monument which comprises line drawings, photographs and descriptive text.
Volume VIII: Monuments 2065-2834
The eighth and final volume records 729 monuments located east of the Pagan walled city, around the Ananda temple. This is probably the most famous monument of the whole site. Annexed to the present volume are a comprehensive map of the site at a scale of 1:20 000, a list of corrections and additions to the previous volumes, and a correlation chart between the present inventory numbers and the monuments indexed in Old Burma-Early Pagan (1969).
