It's incredible how many people climb to the pagoda every day, either by elevator, or like me, climbing the hundreds and thousands of steps one by one which lead to the main pagoda at the top of the hill. Shwedagon exudes spirituality and you feel comfortable and relaxed watching the movement of faithful, ceremonies and prayers. Recommend up before sunset, and watch as the sun pagodas are lit and its golden color is accentuated with warm artificial light, perfect for turning the camera on long exposure.
The Temple of Chaukhatgyi has the biggest Reclining Buddha in Myanmar. It looks a bit like a "falla" from Valencia and has the face of a transvestite, but the church as a whole is charming, especially Buddhist monks who come to him for pray, many pilgrims also engaged in spinning his alrrededor. The reclining Buddha is 72 meters long and is located in downtown Yangon
While walking through the maze of streets in Yangon, you discover in the greatest cross street this beautiful pagoda, which is like a beacon in the middle of urban chaos. You can rest and meditate inside as it is a true oasis.
