|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. Constructed in the early 11th century during the Transitional Period of kingdoms, Khe Min Ga Zedi is a rectangular two-story Buddhist temple with four vestibules.
|CyArk conducted a third independent mission to Bagan in 2017, following two earlier expeditions in collaboration with Carleton University. The 2017 mission took place following a major earthquake in 2016 and the documentation was focused on the extent of damage that occurred to previously surveyed monuments.These expeditions assisted UNESCO and the Myanmar Department of Archaeology (DoA) towards conservation efforts at the massive archaeological site. CyArk and partners utilized LiDAR and both aerial and terrestrial photogrammetry to document the monuments. This expedition was funded through the Google Cultural Institute.
