Shwedagon is a golden pagoda, standing 112 meters tall. It is located on Singuttara Hill, in Yangon, Myanmar. According to the belief, the pagoda was build 2,500 years ago. However, there is an evidence that it may be built between the 6th and the 10th Century. The pagoda contains eight of the Buddha’s hairs. The pagoda base was made from brick, and covered with gold plates. The top of the pagoda is adorned by 5,448 diamonds and 2,317 rubies. On the very top, there is a 75-karat diamond. The kings, the royalties and the Burmese people gave the gold and the jewelry away for the pagoda construction. That is why Shwedagon is the greatest pagoda in Myanmar.
