Description

Myanmar, known as the land of pagodas, is rich in the pagodas, particularly in Pagan. The amazing vastness of the ruins reminiscent of the glory that was of Pagan in its heyday inspired this study. The evolution, which traces back to the beginning of the stupa structure in India, deals with the various architectural phases it passed through ending with the final stage culminating in the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon. Includes over 138 photographs. 

This work is the outcome of research on the evolution of stupas in Burma, Pagan Period, 11th to 13th centuries A.D.
