Shwedagon Pagoda Yangon Region Pagodas & Monuments | 1 comments

Considered by the people of Myanmar (Burma) to be the most sacred of all Buddhist sites, the Shwedagon Pagoda is a golden stupa that dominates the skyline.
Shwedagon Pagoda

Its magnificent surface glitters brilliantly in the sun during the day, and glows almost magically amid spotlights at night.

The Shwedagon Pagoda is located to the north of central Yangon, between People's Park and Kandawgyi. Grab a ticket at the counter and head over to the elevator, which will take you up to a set of raised platforms leading to the majestic stupa. As you emerge on the other side of the platform, and walk toward the base of the monument, you’ll see the stupa gradually unfolding before you, a sight that should not be missed.

The Shwedagon Pagoda is a must-see if you are in Yangon, not only because it is of such cultural significance to the Burmese people, but also because its golden gleam is so visible across the city!
