The Shwezigon Pagoda, Bagan
Myanmar, Bagan

Info : The Shwezigon Pagoda

The Shwezigon Pagoda is a deeply significant 11th century sacred building in Bagan that represents Theravada Buddhism. King Anawrahta built the “paya” himself, enclosing a number of sacred relics inside and endorsing the 37 nat (spirits) by placing 37 sculptures on the pagoda’s terraces. Unfortunately, the original sculptures were stolen and their exact location is now unknown, though rumoured to be Italy. All the same, the Shwezigon Pagoda is breathtakingly beautiful, covered both in gold and copper and full of exquisite detail.
