Ghosts, Brutal Conquerors and Scary Stories in Bagan

November 23, 2011 by | Filed Under: Authentic Experiences, Myanmar, News

Khiri Travel Myanmar makes temples fun for all members of the family. During a trip through Myanmar, the 11th century temple site of Bagan is a must-do experience. There are great stories of kings, ghosts and princesses that used to live in this area.


The half-day tour is called “Ghosts, Superstitious Kings, Brutal Conquerors and Other Scary Stories.” During the tour, our guide takes you to places in Bagan with a scary history and hair rising myths and anecdotes. Is the spirit of the Tharaba gate really the soul of a person buried alive inside the doorpost? How many construction workers had their arms chopped off at that stone at Dhammayangyi stupa? And are there still ghosts here at night? The guide will tell you all. The tour gives a good insight into the behaviour of kings and queens during this period. It explains the scary stuff that happened when the Mongols invaded.

Khiri Travel Myanmar also organises a treasure hunt for children through the market of Nyaung U near Bagan. Or try a picnic lunch or a boat ride to a hidden cave temple. Khiri Travel Myanmar makes Bagan come alive for children and adults alike.
