new public buildings within the
whole area of Bagan harmoniously. New public buildings such as
hotels, motels, guest houses, inns, museum and viewing tower are constructed within old Bagan
area, new Bagan area, area of inside city wall and Nyaung Oo area. The authority demarcated laws
d regulations, and building control plans within archaeological zone, monumental zone and
preservation zone for constructing of new public buildings and then new public buildings must not
construct within their demarcated areas. In present, new public buildings are influencing within the
area of Bagan according to their site and setting, form and height. Bagan archaeological museum is
influencing not only the environment of Gawdawpalin temple but also the whole Bagan area
according to its massive form. And,
viewing tower is also influencing with the height of building.
Construction of new public buildings such as Bagan archaeological museum and viewing tower which
can be compared in relation to their height and massiveness such as the height and form of Bagan
monuments can lose the essence of Bagan from visual aspects. While taking every respect of old
cultural heritage buildings, it is very important to consider ( i ) not to lose the value of cultural
heritage buildings ( ii ) not to influence with site and
setting ( iii ) not to influence with the form of
building and ( iv ) not to obstruct with the height of building. Therefore, in depth research work
should be conducted for the emergence of new public buildings in Bagan environment.".....Paper delivered at the International Conference on Burma/Myanmar Studies: Burma/Myanmar in Transition: Connectivity, Changes and Challenges: University Academic Service Centre (UNISERV), Chiang Mai University, Thailand, 24-­26 July 2015.
