Magnificent Shwedagon pagoda was built more than 2000 years ago and is truly one of the world’s wonders. Legend says that the relics of the four Buddha are enshrined in the pagoda which makes Shwedagon one of the most revered Buddhist temples in the world. Its stupa, 99 m high, is covered with millions of tiny gold leaves (the total weight of the gold covering the pagoda is believed to be up to 60 tons), and the spire of the pagoda is decorated with precious stones including diamonds, rubies and sapphires.
Your guide will reveal you secrets of the pagoda and you will enjoy an unforgettable sunset view of the splendid Shwedagon in the shafts of sunlight of the parting day.
