Shwemawdaw Paya, Bago
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Admire the tallest pagoda in Myanmar at Shwemawdaw Paya, a glistening gold stupa that reaches an amazing 114 m (375 ft). Originally built in the 10th century, the structure has collapsed and been rebuilt numerous times due to earthquakes, each time being rebuilt a little taller. In 1930, a devastating earthquake reduced the pagoda to nothing more than a mound of rubble, and it remained that way for around 20 years. Legend has it that the original 21 m (70 ft) tall structure was built to hold two hairs of the Buddha. Explore the grounds and find a peaceful shady spot to admire the view. Arrive early to beat the crowds and the midday heat. Put Shwemawdaw Paya and other Bago attractions into our Bago vacation generator, and watch your holiday take shape.

入り口で裸足にならなければならず、焼けた石畳の上でパゴダを一周するのが大変でしたが、快晴に輝くそれは、見てカメラに収める価値は十分にあります。It shines in the sky was hard on the pavement at the entrance must be barefoot, burnt around the pagoda, but are well worth looking at the camera.show original

古都バゴーで一番大きなパゴダではなかろうか。 ヤンゴンのシュエダゴン・パゴダとまではいかないが、なかなか立派な仏塔（パゴダ）だった。 敷地内も広く、見応えがある。 大きな木の木陰で休むのも良し。 小さな寝はん僧もあった。Not in the historic town of Bago in pagodas. Not to the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, but was quite respectable Chedi (pagoda). Impressive, spacious premises. Is ideal for resting in the shade of a large tree. Small sleeping Han was a priest.show original
