The Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon and the Borobudur Tower in Indonesia and the Angkor Wat in Cambodia are called the three major monuments in Southeast Asia. The Burmese people regard it as a national pride because it enshrines many treasures of the world, such as Sakyamuni. Nie's eight heirs, detaining the Sun Buddha's staff, are waiting for the clean water of the Buddha, the Buddha's shackles. Looking far and wide, the Golden Pagoda is like an inverted clock. The whole tower is 112 meters high and is spread on 115 square meters. The most amazing thing is that the tower is covered with more than 1,000 pieces of pure gold foil. When the lantern was first set up, the whole building looked like a castle in a fairy tale. The treasure was flashing and solemn and luxurious. The night of the Shwedagon Pagoda is the most beautiful time of the day. Thousands of Buddhist believers pray here piously. The fragrance in the hands is stained with the light of the Yingyin fire candle. The smell of the agarwood is scattered all the time. The tired heart seems to find the destination. Generally, to calm down.

The Shwedagon Pagoda is an immense Buddhist shrine that was built an estimated 2500 years ago in Yangon, Burma. The native title for the shrine is Shwedagon Zedi Daw. It is also known in English as the Great Dagon Pagoda or the Golden Pagoda. This breathtaking pagoda houses several ancient relics and is considered the most sacred of all Burmese Buddhist shrines. It is located west of Kandawgyi Lake, on Singuttara Hill. At 325 feet high, this golden-plated pagoda completely dominates the city skyline. Many tourists choose to buy pieces of gold leaf from the vendors and apply it to the Pagoda as a token of respect for the beauty of this amazing gilded landmark.
