Probably the most magnificent sight in Yangon, the Shwedagon Pagoda, also called the Great Dagon Pagoda, is a gilded, golden marvel. At over 2,500 years old, it’s the oldest pagoda in the world and was supposedly built to enshrine 8 hairs of Gautama Buddha. Whatever the reason it was built, it’s a beautiful site, especially at dusk when the light hits it just right to make it glow.
