Unesco inscribed Myanmar’s ancient capital of Bagan as a World Heritage Site on July 6, 2019.


Saya U Moe Aung (Tekkatho Moe War) has portrayed the cultural, religious, historical and architectural heritage of Bagan.

စာေရးသူရဲ႕ ႏွလံုးေသြးမွ စီးဆင္းလာတဲ့
ႏွစ္သိမ့္ၾကည္ႏူးျခင္း ကဗ်ာ။

“ပုဂံအေမြ”

Heritage of BAGAN

ႏွလံုးေသြးရဲ႕ တဒုတ္ဒုတ္ျမည္သံ
ပုဂံေျမထဲ လြင့္ပ်ံသြား။

Rapid, incessant heart beat
racing towards the Bagan area

ႏွလံုးသားမွာစူးနစ္
အေမြအႏွစ္ဟာ ပုဂံ….။

Deeply rooted in the bottom of my heart
the cultural, religious, historical and architectural heritage of Bagan


ကမၻာ႔ ရင္သပ္႐ႈေမာ၊ အံ႔ၾသဖြယ္ၾကည္ညိဳ
ပုဂံကိုသြတ္သြင္း၊ စာရင္း၀င္ အေမြအႏွစ္
လြမ္းရစ္ေတာ့ တစ္ဖန္
ေၾသာ္…. ပုဂံရယ္….။

Fascinating, full of wonder and memories,
heart rendering, sublime Bagan
finally, rightfully inscribed as World Heritage Site
O … ancient Temple City
where I left my heart

ဟိုး အေ၀းထိ၊ လွမ္းေမွ်ာ္ၾကည့္တိုင္း
ထိ႐ွ လြမ္းေမာ၊ တေ၀ါေ၀ါ စီးဆင္း
ျမစ္မင္း ဧရာ၀တီ၊ ၀န္းလည္ ရစ္ေခြ
မႈိုင္းမိႈင္းေ၀ေ၀
ႏွလံုးသား ေၾကြက်၊ အနဂၣ ခ်စ္ျခင္း၊
ေၾသာ္….ျမစ္မင္းဧရာ၀တီရယ္….။

Every time one looks yonder
touched by the whirling, swirling,
vibrant Ayeyarwaddy (Lord of the rivers)
Misty, dreamy panoramic view
O … my dear Ayeyarwaddy

ယဥ္ေက်းမႈရဲ႕
ပန္းပု ဗိသုကာ၊ လက္ရာေထာင္ေသာင္း
ေစတီပုထိုးေပါင္းမ်ားစြာ
ကမၻာကုန္တည္သေ႐ြ႕၊ ၾကည္ေမြ႕ ႏွစ္လို
ၾကည္ညိဳ ၀ပ္တြား၊ ေပ်ာက္ပ်က္မသြားဖို႔
ထားသစၥာဉာဏ္အသိ၊ တိက် မွန္ကန္
ေၾသာ္…. ပုဂံရယ္. …။ ။
(ကမၻာ့ ယဥ္ေက်းမႈအေမြအႏွစ္အျဖစ္သတ္မွတ္ျခင္း
ခံရသည့္ ပုဂံ သို႔. ….)

Finest culture
Treasure of sculpture
Architecture galore
Countless shrines and pagodas of Pagan
Will last for eternity
as World Heritage Site
to be revered, cherished and appreciated
O … glorious Bagan

Editor’s notes :

  • Per suggestion of U San Lin (Maung Lu Pay, M83), I use “ZawDecode” which which is a compromise Font.
  • It handles Unicode reasonably well, but only 80 – 90% of Zawgyi.
