Not as bustling as Nyaung U, even though it’s closer to the juicy temples, New Bagan (Bagan Myothit; ပုဂံႃမို႔သစ္) sprang into existence in 1990 when the government relocated the village from the Old Bagan area. The people have done their best to make the most of their new home, with a network of shady, dusty roads away from the river. It’s a laid-back, friendly place, and the morning market (on the main road three blocks east of the Eight-Faces Paya) offers an interesting glimpse of local life.
