Local name: Shwedagon Zedi Daw

The Shwedagon Pagoda is Myanmar’s national pride. It’s not the most important temple in the country, but also the largest. The pagoda is covered in gold leaf and shimmers in the sunlight.

The sunsets here create a gorgeous spectacle of light in orange and gold, which guarantees amazing pictures.

Buddhists aim to visit this temple at least once in their lifetime. So if you’re in Myanmar, the Golden Temple of Yangon is a must. You can reach the temple using stairs, but there is also a lift. Sometimes you can be asked to make a payment to use your camera, but this is not always the case.
