    Bagan - City of Temples. The story of the Bagan Empire of Myanmar.
  • So he did take some small liberties with the historical narrative but the rest are mostly fine. He minimized the accomplishments of Anawrahtha and his nation-building works. He also asserted that Theravada buddhism came from Sri Lanka when there is no academic research establishing that to my knowledge. Also, he deducted from the cost of the complete text of the buddhist scriptures at that time to conclude that most people were illiterate. We don't know that, even if that was likely. It may be that the tradition of buddhist novices where every boy goes to the monastery to learn literacy and scriptures came in later dynasties.
