Swe Taw Myat Pagoda in Yangon
The Swe Taw Myat Pagoda is the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. It is located in the north of Yangon near to the International Airport and a short distance to the west of Tadalay Railway Station. The temple is open daily from 06:00 to 18:00 and admission is free although if you want to use a camera then there is a charge of 200 Kyat.
The Swe Taw Myat Pagoda was built to exhibit a tooth of the Lord Buddha for 45 days in 1994. The tooth came from China and went back when the exhibition ended. What remains enshrined at the temple is an ivory copy of the tooth which is on display inside the temple contained within a glass case. What is most interesting about the Swe Taw Myat Pagoda is the building itself. The temple, particularly the top part, resembles the 12th Century Ananda pagoda in Bagan. The inside of the temple is also beautifully decorated with gold leaf covering thick cylindrical posts which support the spire like structure which rises about the copy of the Buddha’s tooth.
