Shwedagon Pagoda, Yangon, Myanmar (Burma)
The exact age of the Pagoda is unknown. It is estimated that the structure is 2,000 to 2,500 years old, made during the time of Buddha and to give shelter to the hairs of Buddha. It is also said that the entire city of Myanmar has contributed gold to the pagoda so that it can be maintained well, started from the queen of Shin Sawbu who donated gold equal to her own weight.

This great golden stupa of 321.5 feet high is the one place that all Myanmar Buddhists hope to visit at least once in their lifetime.
