Based on the records of Buddhist monks, the Shwedagon Pagoda was built before Gautama Buddha died in 486 BCE coinciding with age according to legend. It used to be only 18 meters tall. From 1453 to 1472 it was raised to 40 meters. The stupa was rebuilt many times until it reached its current height of 98 meters in the 18th century. It is believed that if a person wants to avoid bad luck and misfortune, he must pour water at one’s planetary post and he will be ensure of peace of mind and all anxieties will end.

It is 15 meters taller than the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon. It is one of Burma’s most sacred sites, because it enshrines several relics of the Buddha. Two huge Chinthe, mythological animals that look like a lion stand guard at the entrance of the temple grounds. Numerous small pagodas are placed at the base of the 114 meter tall Shwe Maw Daw. The pagoda is topped with a diamond studded hti, a top ornament shaped as an umbrella found on most Burmese temples.

The reclining Buddha image is housed in an iron pavilion called tazaung with Italian marble on the floor. On the walls are murals depicting scenes from the Jataka tales, the stories that tell about the previous lives of the Buddha. It was rediscovered by chance in the colonial era when the British built a railway between Yangon and Bago in 1881.
  • Kanbawzathadi Palace – built by King Bayinnaung (1551-1581 A.D.) the founder of the second Myanmar Empire. The original palace consisted of 76 apartments and halls according to the old drawing record. It was burned down in 1599. Several buildings of the palace have been rebuilt. The Great Audience Hall was the largest building in the palace where the King received his ministers and officials. The hall is also known as the Royal Lion Throne Hall, because it contained the Thihathana Throne or Lion Throne. The Bhammayarthana Throne Hall, also called Bee Throne Hall contained the private quarters for the King, including the Royal bed chamber and living chamber. This very ornate building has multiple roof sections and false floors, and is topped with a Pyatthat, a seven tiered Burmese style roof. Other buildings contained the chambers of members of the Royal family.
  • KyaikPon four huge sitting Buddhas – built in 1476 by King Dhammazedi, a devout Buddhist and King of the Mon Kingdom of Hanthawaddy (Pegu). This pagoda is known for its four towering images of the Buddha visible from far away. According to local legend, four Mon sisters were involved in the building of the Kyaik Pun Paya. Among them they pledged never to get married as long as they lived. If one of them was to get married, one of the Buddha statues would collapse. According to the legend, one of the women broke her promise and got married, resulting in the collapse of one of the images, the Kassapa Buddha.

The pagoda is believed to have been built more than 2,000 years ago, after which it has been enlarged and renovated many times. The base of the pagoda is surrounded by many small golden stupas.
