Ancient Cities of Pyu in Mandalay

Many will be surprised to know that the temples of Bagan are still under the tentative list for future UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Today though, Myanmar has only the ancient cities of Pyu included in the list. This area surrounds the five city states of Beikthano, Maingmaw, Binnaka, Halin and Sri Ksetra where ruins of the Tibeto-Burmese speaking Pyu civilization from as early as the 2nd century can still be found.
