Shwedagon Paya at Dusk - Rangoon, Burma (Yangon, Myanmar)

The sun sets over Shwedagon Paya (holy monument), one of Burma's (Myanmar's) most holy Buddhist temples. The main stupa (zedi) supposedly features 53 tonnes of gold leaf and a spire encrusted with over 5,000 diamonds and 2,000 other precious stones. Mighty rich for a Buddhist temple. Taken in Rangoon (Yangon). Read more about our visit to Rangoon (Yangon). © www.uncorneredmarket.com
