The Shwedagon pagoda in Burma's capital, Yangon, is one of the biggest Pagodas in the world and at least the most important Shrine in Myanmar. It is said that the Pagoda was built 2500 years ago before the decease of the historical Buddha, Gautama Siddharta. More than 60 t of Gold on it, more than 30m high, surrounded by 60 tiny golden stupas and a 76 karat diamond on it: One of the most impressive shrines I've ever seen ! Must See in Burma.
