Travel Snaps: Shwedagon Pagoda, Yangon Myanmar

Travels Snaps: Features our best photos of iconic places that we visit during our previous travel. It’s a recollection of unforgettable snaps and story behind it.

The ginormous golden stupa of Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon was one of the highlight on our  Myanmar visit last year. This famous pagoda enshrines most of Buddha’s holy relics and labeled to be the most sacred and impressive Buddhist site in entire Myanmar. 

Visiting it on the mid day was a test as one must take off the footwear upon entering the pagoda premises. This means walking barefoot on mid noon sun. We almost ignore the tormenting heat on our soles while enjoying the breathtaking grandiose of Shwedagon Pagoda.

We got a mission to snap that postcard worthy view of this revered pagoda. It may not be that perfect but it captures the entirety and ticks off one of our 40ish list.

Tip: Best to capture it at sunset and night time.
