Yangon is famous for the amazing Shwedagon Pagoda, and rightfully so. This magnificent structure has been around since the 6th century CE, and is the most important religious site in Myanmar. Legend has it that the area around the Pagoda has been sacred since the beginning of time. The towering golden Pagoda is not only an amazing sight, but the area around it is lively and dynamic, with children running around joyfully, monks chatting and women gossiping, all while others are in deep meditation and prayer.
