See the magnificent golden Shwedagon Pagoda in which is enshrined the sacred relics of three Buddhas and eight hair relics of the Supreme Self-enlightened Buddha, who attained Nirvana over 2,500 years ago. The Pagoda is 326 feet high and 1,420 feet round and the pinnacle is studded with priceless gems. The "hti" or umbrella was replaced in 1999 but one can still see the original housed on the main concourse. See the famous bell which the British and many other "trouser people" have tried unsuccessfully to remove from Myanmar - listen to the story and follow the pictures!
Visit the Gems Museum and amaze at the priceless rubies, sapphires and jade and see the world's largest pearl which was discovered in 2001; then visit the Cultural Museum where the regalia of the last Myanmar King and imperial throne are housed...
