This Pagoda is just mind blowing...So much to see n learn n great architecture too.. Best is to get a guide to show around n mention all important spots like we did to understand n learn better.. The setting sun reflection on the massive diamond n other precious gems on the tip of the spire is breathtaking..
A major attraction at Yangon.. Must visit...

Shwedagon Pagoda is the most valuable place for Myanmar people, especially for Buddhist people. Buddhist believe there will be 5 Buddha get enlightenment in the "Budda Gabar/Globe". 4 Buddha "Katkuthan, Kawnagon, Kathapa & Gawdam" already got enlightenment and Shwedagon Pagoda has been built together with enshrined relic of four Buddhas.

Biggest Pagoda in South East Asia. Myanmar Buddhist people donating real gold to the tample.

The Shwedagon is the most sacred Buddhist pagoda in Myanmar, as it is believed to contain relics of the four previous Buddhas of the present kalpa.

Shwedagon Pagoda has been a 2500 years old Pagoda which enshrines strands of Buddha's hairs and other holy relics. This Pagoda is covered with hundreds of gold plates and the top of the stupa is encrusted with 4531 diamonds, the largest of which is a 72 carat diamond.
First of all, as soon as you see this pagoda, you'll be impressed by it. Normally, during the festivals or mostly at nights in normal days, it is crowded with local people and foreigners. But it won't disappoint you, you can see golden lightening Pagoda and will see how Myanmar people are lively in festivals. On the mornings, can also feel pleasure with the sounds of Myanmar people praying alternatively.
Secondly, according to Burma's belief, there are some Buddha images that you can make a wish for getting a son, for being loved by your crushes and so on. And for encrusting gold plates or using generals in pagoda, you can donate some money.
Last but not least, I believe you won't regret of going there. In Yangon, if you have more time, you can also visit Sule Pagoda on the Sule Pagoda Road. Furthermore, there are many many Buddhist sites such as Mandalay, Bagan, Kyaik-Htee-Yoe Pagoda in Mon State, etc.... in Myanmar.
