Best to visit the smaller pagodas such as this one before visiting the very impressive Shwedagon Pagoda. Worth a short visit whilst exploring the Colonial Quarter.

Oh what a stunning pagoda and even though it was partly under scaffold due to renovation work it didn't take away from its complete beauty. So calming and thought provoking. It's just amazing and a must see!

It is an interesting pagoda from outside while inside there isn't much to see and in addition, there are way more people trying to scam you in and around this pagoda in contrast to other pagodas in Yangon

As the Shwedagon Pagoda is under renovation, this is the best one in Yangon. Not that big but still impressive. It is located in the center of the city and surrounded by other monuments. Definitely worth a visit in Yangon.

A bit strange experience. A lot I preying people, mixed with tourists and some people who do crafts, origami and other stuff. Make sure to go on the bridge, is has a nice over the pagoda. Worth a trip, but only one

One from many amazing pagods in Mayanmar. So, You can see but don't have to. Your choice, visit or no. But if You are in area, it's worthy to see.
