Suu Kyi criticizes restoration of Myanmar temples

Pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi says restoration work on Myanmar's landmark Bagan temples does not not meet international standards.
Suu Kyi said Monday she was saddened by the condition of the temples in Bagan, which the United Nations has designated a World Cultural Heritage site.
Her visit to Bagan last week was her first trip out of Yangon since being released from house arrest last year.
Bagan, also known as Pagan, has more than 2,800 monuments built between the 10th and 14th centuries. The central Myanmar site is considered one of Southeast Asia's major historical landmarks, with Cambodia's Angkor Wat and Indonesia's Borobodur temple.
