The Golden Shwezigon

Shot in Burma during my last visit in September.


3 exposures. HDR tone-mapped in PhotomatixPro3 + layer adjustment in CS5.


The Shwezigon Pagoda is one of the most significant religious buildings in ancient city of Bagan as well as in Burma. It was built in the 11th century by King Anawrahta (r. 1044-77) and was completed by King Kyanzittha (r. 1084-1113) between 1086 and 1090.
