The most popular attraction located at Yangon is the great Shwedagon Pagoda that is about 2, 500 years old. It is covered with gold plates and a stupa containing 4,531 diamonds at the top, with 72-carat diamond considered as the largest. Moreover, it is also the most sacred and impressive Buddhist site for the people of Burma where Gautama Buddha’s hair strands and other holy relics were enshrined.
