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. Historians and archaeologists maintain that the pagoda was built by the Mon people between the 6th and 10th centuries AD. However according to legend the Shwedagon Pagoda was constructed more than 2600 years ago which would make it the oldest Buddhist stupa in the world. The Shwedagon Pagoda consists hundreds colorful temples and stupas and statues that reflects the architectural era spanning almost a 2500 years.
