Myanmar aims to finish renovation work for quake-affected Bagan temples in the country’s central region by 2020, according to an official from the Department of Archaeology, National Museum and Library.

Thursday will mark one year since the powerful 6.8-magnitude earthquake struck central Myanmar on Aug. 24, centered about 15 miles west of Chauk in Magwe Region.

Out of the 3,252 temples and pagodas across Bagan—located to the north of the epicenter—389 were affected by the tremors and needed renovation, according to the department’s inventory.
