Photographer's Note

Another one retrieved from the archives

That's an amazing crown jewel of the country; it's huge, varied, stunning, absorbing and Gold, Gold and Gold everywhere, 60 tons of it encrusted on the massive 112 meters high stupa, not to mention the precious gems, such as rubies, sapphires, jade and the diamond orb winks to the skies from the very top of the spire. This glittering landmark towers over a vast complex of gilded shrines, surrounded by smaller pagodas, temples and pavilions which feature intricate designs and giant smiling Buddhas in sitting and reclining poses.

Shwedagon is beautiful by day and spectacular by night
