View of the Shwedagan Pagoda in Yangon Myanmar from Summit Parkview Hotel. The Shwedagon Pagoda (officially named Shwedagon Zedi Daw and also known as the Great Dagon Pagoda and the Golden Pagoda) is a gilded stupa located in Yangon. The 326-foot-tall pagoda dominates the Yangon skyline.
Shwedagon Pagoda is the most sacred Buddhist pagoda in Myanmar as it is believed to contain relics of the four previous Buddhas of the present kalpa. These relics include 1) the staff of Kakusandha 2) the water filter of Koṇāgamana 3) a piece of the robe of Kassapa and 4) eight strands of hair from the head of Gautama. The lower part of the stupa is covered with banboo covering during renovations. Yangon Myanmar
