Rangoon: Must See
While there are several Buddhist temples that are worth a visit, as well as churches, museums, parks, a zoo and the houses of Aung San and Aung San Suu Kyi, one major temple stands out.
The Shwegadon Pagoda or Shwegadon Paya is the most important religious site in Yangon and in the country. It is said to contain eight hair strands of Buddha. The original pagoda was built around the 6th century AD. It is huge, guilded and ornately decorated and lit with a multitude of colored lights, that rival the neon signs in Las Vegas in their brightness and color. It is not solemn like other Buddhist temples because monks could be seen outside chatting, children running around playing and locals gathering to catch up on the latest gossip. You still need to dress conservatively and remember that you have to remove your shoes while in the pagoda.
The Eastern walkway is the most interesting. The southern one has an elevator while the northern one has an escalator. Huge stone lions guard the entrances. Things to visit are the eight day shrines (Wednesday is divided into two days), Statue of Wa Thon Da Ray, Maha Ganda Bell, the Arakanese Prayer Pavilion, Dhammazedi Inscription and Naungdawgyi Pagoda and Sandawdwin Tazaung. The Naungdawgyi Pagoda is the Elder Pagoda where only men are allowed inside.
