Shwedagon Pagoda, Yangon (Rangoon)

4.7
Journey to Shwedagon Pagoda along with faithful Buddhist practitioners, who visit to honor the relics of previous Buddhas. This golden stupa, or pagoda, ranks among the holiest religious sites in Myanmar. Tradition dictates that it has stood for over 2,600 years, although historians approximate that the Mon people constructed it between the 6th and 10th centuries. In its current state, after countless renovations and reconstructions, diamonds and other precious stones encrust its steeple; see if you can spot the legendary 76-carat diamond at the tip from the ground below.

  • People says if you didn't arrive Shwedagon Pagoda, you wouldn't really arrive Burma. The Pagoda itself was wonderful with breathtaking decoration. Really peaceful in night time.  more »

  • The best in Yangon! We spent a day there just sitting watching contemplating and enjoying. In the entrance they give you a detailed map with explanations which is enough if you don’t know anything about it. Otherwise if you read and investigate beforehand you’ll enjoy it much more. Don’t be in hurry to visit this place!
  • Really nice place but the main pagoda is under renovation till April. Also be careful of coming up to be your friend. They will talk to you for a while and then before you know it you’re on a tour and they apparently ask for huge payment at the end. It didn’t happen to me but I met many people that did have it happen to them
