The Bupaya Pagoda from Myanmar


Postcard
Bupaya Pagoda is a famous pagoda located in Bagan (formerly Pagan), along the banks of the Ayeyarwady River. The pagoda is small in size, and is widely believed to have been built in the 200s by King Pyusawhti.

The original pagoda was completely destroyed in the 1975 earthquake, and was reconstructed using modern materials, with less adherence to the original construction design.


Stamp
ASEAN Joint stamp issue - Presidential Palace, Hanoi (2007)

The stamp is dated 19 September 2011. So it travelled more than 3 months! But there is a sticker on the back “ missent to Thailand”.
