This week’s crazy building is Sulamani Temple in Bagan, Myanmar.
This remarkable Buddhist temple was built by the Burmese king Narapatisithu in 1183, over 830 years ago.
It rises high above the many pagodas surrounding it, making it one of the most-visited attractions in the region. Tourists soar above the landscape in hot air balloons to take in the breathtaking views.
Parts of the structure were damaged following a 1975 earthquake, but it has thankfully been restored to its original state.
The name “Sulamani” literally means “crowning jewel,” and this temple truly is a gem!
