Create an itinerary including Shwedagon Pagoda
Journey to Shwedagon Pagoda along with faithful Buddhist practitioners, who visit to honor the relics of previous Buddhas. This golden stupa, or pagoda, ranks among the holiest religious sites in Myanmar. Tradition dictates that it has stood for over 2,600 years, although historians approximate that the Mon people constructed it between the 6th and 10th centuries. In its current state, after countless renovations and reconstructions, diamonds and other precious stones encrust its steeple; see if you can spot the legendary 76-carat diamond at the tip from the ground below.

  • The most sacred place for the Buddhists. The legend says that the pagoda enshrined the relics of the four Buddha in this world. As the Shwedagon Pagoda is a very active place for religious affairs and attracts a lot of tourists. You can't say you reach Myanmar without paying a visit to Shwedagon Pagoda regardless of your religion. Can feel the cool breeze as soon as you arrived to the square of the Pagoda. The Pagoda is almost always full with pilgrims.
  • Would give 10 Stars if i was able to! , this is the main attraction of Yangon with a good reason. a giant complex with many giant temples inside. could happly spend an entire day in this holy place. i recommend getting there through people's Park
  • Words can not describe it. Come early in the morning. Be there. (For the more pragmatic ones: No, you do not need to make other plans for the day. You will hardly ever find another place like that in your entire life.)
  • The place where many people make merit a lot and practice meditation. Both Buddhists and non-Buddhists start feeling peaceful when they meet Buddha stupas. ☺️😍😊💜☸️☸️ Sadhu Sadhu Sadhu Myanmar people love Shwedagon pagoda SO much!!
  • Absolutely nice sightseeing place. With a long history more than thousand years. You may need to spend 2 to 3 hours to observe around Shwedagon. Although it’s outdoor and sunny day, the floor of pagoda area still not too hot. Extremely good photo spot in afternoon and early morning. At the entrance gate there are a lot of beggars, please be aware pickpocket.
