Shwedagon Paya

No one knows exactly when the Shwedagon Paya in Myanmar was built - legend has it that it is 2,500 years old though archaeologists estimate that it was built between the 6th and 10th century. This temple is also known as the Golden Pagoda, is a 98-meter (approx. 321.5 feet) gilded stupa located in Yangon, Burma.
