Famous Pagodas in MyanmarPagodas of Myanmar
It' a very famous Myanmar marina coupe. In Buddhism, everyone who comes to Yangon must see and adore this pit ot to end their journey. It is also the best place and magnet for travellers coming to Yangon.
This is the best way to study Buddhism both religiously and culturally. Yangon would not be completed without visiting the Shwedagon caves. Nice and great coupé. And Yangon has the kindest folks. Dinner is great and the early bird fair near Chinatown is really definitely something for you. In most holy places in Myanmar you cannot even wearing boots or stockings and this is one of them.
Were you at the Shwedagon Pagoda?
Undoubtedly one of the most famous pagodas in Myanmar - Review of the Mahamuni Pagoda, Mandalay, Myanmar
I was a little couch potato at this point on my journey. Which pagodas and Buddhas do we really need to see? But I really loved the Mahamuniagoda. First, the columns of the cemetery were not coated with gold/gold paint or glass/mirrors, which is a little much for me.
Since the lower half of the columns is made out of jadé (I don't think it is jade), the columns were very beautiful and a little different from the other pagodas I had been to. Secondly, there is a Mahamuni History Museu. It is not so much a collection of art as a collection of pictures showing how the Buddha was taken to Mandalay from Mrauk U. Part of the collection was shut down for restoration, but there were still some of them.
Third, and my favourite part of my stay at the pit is the Museum of Bronzes. It is a small room with only six bronzes (or what's remaining of them) that were taken out of Cambodia, but they were really beautiful to see. Shields explained the story of the statue in both English and Burma.
These were the reason why I loved this coupé, but the major feature of this coupon is the large Buddha, which has a thick golden coating of hundreds of centuries worth of pure golden leaves. Men (women are not allowed) can put golden leaves on the Buddha for a contribution. If you don't have a good sight of the men who cover the Buddha with golden, there are TV connected camcorders (although I really don't understand why this is so intriguing for people).
It is also free, not even for foreign visitors, and even if you are not interested in the Buddha or the Buddha, a museum tour is worthwhile.
