The Shwedagon Pagoda (also known as the ‘Golden Pagoda’ or ‘Great Dragon Pagoda’), is one of the most sacred Buddhist pagoda in Myanmar. Located on Singuttara Hill, the structure alone dominates the Yangon skyline. Legend says that the Shwedagon Pagoda was established many years ago, during the time of Lord Buddha. However, the true history of the Shwedagon remains enshrouded in mystery though many archaeologists believe that it was built between 6 and 10 century AD by the Mon people.
