About Shwedagon Pagoda

The Shwedagon pagoda, also known as the Golden (in Burmese: shwe) Pagoda in Yangon, the former capital city of Myanmar.
Officially titled Shwedagon Zedi Daw, the pagoda is built upon the sacred Singuttara Hill. The central building is a gilded stupa, 98m (320 feet) tall. It is the most sacred Buddhist pagoda for the Burmese, with relics of the past four Buddhas enshrined within, namely the staff of Kakusandha, the water filter of Konagamana, a piece of the robe of Kassapa and eight hairs of Gautama, the historical Buddha.

It is said that the Shwedagon Pagoda is 2500 years old and, according to the records by Buddhist monks, it was built before Gautama Buddha died in 486 BC.
