Caption

In the capital city of Yangon, the magnificent Shwedagon Pagoda is the largest and holiest Buddhist temple complex in all of Myanmar. According to historical records the Shwedagon Pagoda has existed for more than 2,600 years, making it the oldest historical pagoda in Myanmar (Burma) and the world. At dusk, the huge temple grounds attract crowds of people coming to light candles, pour water over Buddha images, burn incense and make offerings to avoid misfortune and bad luck. At sunset a blue sky and golden light combine to create surreal scenes.
