Admire the tallest pagoda in Myanmar at Shwemawdaw Paya, a glistening gold stupa that reaches an amazing 114 m (375 ft). Originally built in the 10th century, the structure has collapsed and been rebuilt numerous times due to earthquakes, each time being rebuilt a little taller. In 1930, a devastating earthquake reduced the pagoda to nothing more than a mound of rubble, and it remained that way for around 20 years. Legend has it that the original 21 m (70 ft) tall structure was built to hold two hairs of the Buddha. Explore the grounds and find a peaceful shady spot to admire the view. Arrive early to beat the crowds and the midday heat. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Shwemawdaw Paya by using our Bago holiday tool .
