Sh­wedagon Pagoda

Myanmar Business Travel Guide - - BUSINESS TRAVEL -

“No visit to the Union of Myan­mar is com­plete with­out a visit to the 2,500 year-old Sh­wedagon Pagoda, which en­shrines strands of Bud­dha's hair and other holy relics. From a hum­ble be­gin­ning of 8.2 me­ters, the Sh­wedagon Pagoda to­day stands close to 110 me­ters. Sh­wedagon Pagoda is cov­ered with hun­dreds of gold plates and the top of the stupa is en­crusted with 4,531 di­a­monds. To un­der­stand this mon­u­men­tal work of art and ar­chi­tec­ture, vis­i­tors will ex­pe­ri­ence an in­sider's view of this mag­nif­i­cent sym­bol of Bud­dhism to the lives of the Myan­mar peo­ple.”
