2000-year-old Shwedagon Pagoda

Remove your shoes and walk clockwise with the locals around the Shwedagon Pagoda, the enormous golden stupa serenely dominating the skyline of Rangoon for the last 2000 years. As the city’s prime focus, both religious and lay people gather at the paya to meet, pray, chant and make offerings, or simply to walk around the shrines and statues at its base to chat. Find the shrine that correlates with your day of birth,offer flowers and prayer flags, and pour water on the image with a prayer and a wish, or just walk around and marvel at this sacred and important architectural feat.
