About Shwedagon Pagoda
Shwedagon Pagoda in Central Yangon is the most important religious site in Myanmar. According to local legend construction on the pagoda began during the lifetime of the Lord Buddha over 2,500 years to house several strands of the Lord Buddha’s hair which were given to two travelling Burmese traders who met the Lord Buddha in India. Some historians, however, believe that the temple site was established later in the 6th Century.
The Shwedagon Pagoda is 99 metres tall and covered in solid gold bar, and topped with a 7-tier sold gold umbrella ornament encrusted with thousands of precious stones. The value of the gold and precious stones in the pagoda alone is believed to be worth literally billions of US Dollars. The pagoda sits on large square platform 275 metres on each side surrounded by a number of other religious buildings which are also impressive. There is a lot for visitors to explore at the Shwedagon Pagoda which is open daily from 06:00 to 20:00 with an admission fee of $5 USD for foreign visitors.
