Shwedagon Pagoda Was Towering

Shwedagon Pagoda

The pagoda towered in the center of the precinct

Shot at Shwedagon Paya, a Buddhist temple in Yangon, Myanmar.

On Singuttara Hill, there was the most famous pagoda called Shwedagon Paya. And the golden pagoda was towering in the center of its precinct. Pagoda in Southeastern Asia was covered with gold in the majority of cases.

Although Buddhism has come down also to Japan, the custom didn't come. Pagoda in Japan was usually built of wood. I wondered from where the difference came. Maybe it took a leaf from Shintoism.
