Schwedagon Pagoda, Yangon, Myanmar

The Schwedagon Pagoda in Yangon is the most sacred Buddhist pagoda in Myanmar. It is located on the Singuttara Hill and dominates the skyline of Yangon.
It is not really clear when it was constructed. Historians say that it was built by the Mon People between the 6th and 10th century but legend has it that it was built over 2600 years ago, thus making it the oldest Buddhist stupa in the world.
This awesome postcard was sent by my friends Heike and Marcus Klein
