The most notable building in Yangon is the Shwe Dagon Pagoda, a great cone-shaped Buddhist monument that literally dominates the city. The pagoda itself is a solid brick stupa (Buddhist reliquary) that is completely covered with gold. It rises 326 feet (99 m) on a hill 168 feet (51 m) above the city.

Good colors for this golden temple. Great reflexion. I's a pity for the tilt (1.7°)...
