Shwedagon Pagoda Tours and Activities

star-5
150 Reviews

In a country full of religious shrines, Shwedagon Pagoda is considered the most sacred. Its golden steeple rises high above Yangon’s skyline and relics of previous Buddhas, including a water filter, staff, hairs and a piece of robe, are all kept safe within its structure’s walls. Historians say the pagoda, known locally as Shwedagon Zedi Daw, was built between the 6th and 10th centuries and since then numerous dignitaries, religious figures and political powerhouses, including Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama, have passed through its halls.

Visitors must remove their shoes before going into any of the four main entrances. Travelers will likely pass by religious pilgrims as they ascend the stairs, making an offering of candles, flowers, flags and fruit—an act known as dana—meant to pay homage to Buddha. Visitors should be sure to check out the pagoda’s stupa, which is encrusted with more than 4,500 diamonds, including one that is 72 carats.

Yangon City Tour with a Local guide

Yangon City Tour with a Local guide

star-5

In 1755, King Alaungpaya conquered central Myanmar and built a new city at Dagon, a fishing village that had existed for centuries around the Shwedagon pagoda. He renamed the place Yangon, meaning 'end of strife'. In 1852, the residential areas of the town were damaged by the 2nd Anglo-Myanmar War. After the war, the British seized the power in lower part of Myanmar and reconstructed a modern city, Rangoon (corruption of Yangon). Under the supervision of Englishmen, Dr. William Montgomery and Captain Fraser, Rangoon became the most beautiful and cleanest city in South East Asia and made it capital. It is easy to get a sense of how prosperous of colonial Rangoon was from the monumental architecture that still graces the city's downtown.
