Shwedagon Pagoda

Visit Shwedagon Pagoda

Introduction

Rangoon is renowned for its sparkling pagodas, towering testaments to the Burmese commitment to Buddhism. These sacred skyscrapers are dotted all around the city but none demand more attention than the Shwedagon Pagoda, the tallest of them all.

This superbly sculpted giant golden peak was built more than 2,500 years ago in order to house eight sacred hairs of Buddha.

It has been in continuous use ever since, attracting thousands of pilgrims and now camera-swinging tourists each year.

Smaller, but by no means small, the Botataung Pagoda and Sule Paya, at the very centre of downtown Rangoon, are also well worth a visit.
