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.
