Located in downtown Yangon. Watch out for traffic, this is not California. Well maintained, beautiful functioned Buddhist temple. No one bothered me selling or begging. A short walk from major hotels, The Pullen, Excelsior etc.

In central location in Yangon. A smaller but worth seeing pagoda. I enjoyed walking around the different areas of Yangon. There are so many shops with so much interesting stuff to look at after seeing the pagoda.
