The Shwedagon Pagoda could be the oldest Buddhist Stupa in the world at more than 2600 years old. It soars 99 meters (325 ft) over the Yangon skyline. The very top is crowned with 5448 diamonds and 2317 rubies along with a 76 carat diamond. It supposedly contains relics from four previous Buddhas making it the most sacred pagoda in Myanmar. As you might imagine the experience is simply stunning and words cannot do it justice!
