Me at Shewadagon, Myanmar
Myself resting for a while at Swedagon which is believed to be one of the most important Buddhist site for Myanmar people. From the information that I’ve read this Pagoda is home to approximately 80, 000 precious stones and 3, 154 gold bells!

Coming up next for my Myanmar Series: 2 of 4 – Burmese Architecture. Hope you enjoy viewing the photos! 🙂
