|Site Description||The ancient city of Bagan, was the political, economic, and cultural center of the Bagan Kingdom from approximately 1044 to 1287 CE. The rulers of Bagan oversaw the construction of over 5,000 religious monuments over an area covering about 65 square kilometers on the Bagan plains. More than 2,000 of the original structures have survived in varying states of repair until the present and can be found in the Bagan Archaeological Zone. Built in the mid-13th century, Eim Ya Kyaung was originally constructed as a monastery and converted into a temple. The structure is unique in construction with a single-storied pentagonal shape.
|Project Description||CyArk conducted two field expeditions to Bagan in 2016 in conjunction with Carleton University. These expeditions assisted UNESCO and the Myanmar Department of Archaeology (DoA) towards conservation efforts at the massive archaeological site. After our first mission, an earthquake struck the region damaging hundreds of temples. In the followup mission CyArk and Carleton were able to provide emergency documentation on priority monuments to aide in the immediate assessment efforts. CyArk and partners utilized LiDAR and both aerial and terrestrial photogrammetry to document the monuments. These expeditions were funded through crowd sourcing, the National Geographic Society, as well as support by John Ristevski.
