Burma is one of the most enigmatic lands in the underworld. Myanmar, however, stays off the beaten track. It is not easy to get a Myanmar visas, not to speak of it not really being promoted by tour operators. A land with a centuries-old tradition, it has retained numerous historical sites and is rightly known as the "Golden Land" or "Land of the Golden Pagodas".
There' are about 2500 coupons. Indeed, the whole land is a vast archeological reservation that protects the legacy of antique civilisations. It is of course not possible to describe in a single item and show all of Myanmar's thousand different symbols and symbols in a single series. Therefore we only want to tell you about the most prominent memorial, the Shwedagon Pagoda (Stupa).
It is a cupola symbolising Buddha's teaching. Myanmar's main city, Yangon (Rangoon), is known for the country's most celebrated Stupa, the Shwedagon Pagoda, along with a sanctuary area. Its name comes from "Shwe" (Burmese for "gold") and "Dagon" (in former times this village was located where the Yangon of today exists).
But they were able to supply part of the holy treasury - they took eight heads of the Buddha founder's hair to Myanmar. Shwedagon is the only shrine in the worid with four Buddhistic remains of such great value. Digging a pit on a mound near Dagon, building a grave and covering it with a gold flag.
On top of this, several Stupa's were made of different materials: gold, argentine, pewter, copper, plumb, marmor, steel and bricks. Only in 1774 did the Shwedagon Pagoda reach its present altitude. Following several alterations by King Hsinbyushin, it reaches a level of 99 metres above the table.
Simultaneously, the Shwedagon pit began to look as it does now. The sixty-eight stupa are all gilt, while the shwedagon itself is covered with gilt panels from top to bottom. 8, 000 pieces of gilt, 5000 jewels, 2000 gems and semi-precious gems were used to adorn the principal page.
It is not astonishing that the stupa has been looted over the years and some parts, such as the three hundred year old jewelled church belltower, are now doomed. But the Shwedagon Pagoda in Myanmar has lived to see our day in its full splendour. On the circumference of the Temples hang wood flail clocks in the vicinity.
Myanmar's emblem symbolizes this nation like the Moscow Kremlin Russia or Mount Fuji Japan. Shwedagon Temples is one of the biggest architectonic complexes not only in Myanmar, but throughout Southeast Asia. One can always see the gold skittle of the main stupa tens of kilometres from Yangon, both from the ocean and from the countryside.
