About Shwedagon Pagoda

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.
