Myanmar is the Lands of the Thousands of pagodas and stupas. The gilded stupas seem to dominate most religious landscape in Mandalay and Yangon. But Sein Yaung Chi Pagoda with her glittering glossy stupa is an exception. I was walking my way from the downtown to visit Shwedagon Pagoda and saw this unique temple on the right side of the...

Was walking along Shwedagon Road to get to the Shwedagon pagoda from downtown yangon, and this was one of the attractions I happened to find along the way. Was a quaint place, and the temple owners were very welcoming, seems like not a lot of tourists would know this place. Loved how there were many birds around and the chirping... More

Whole glass covered this pagoda is on the way to the center. As less popular effect from west culture as neon signs is limited.

The Sein Yaung Chi Pagoda is surrounded in glass with green backing giving the appearance of glittering green. It is a small pagoda with the usual external worships such a Bodhi tree and four large Buddhas inside in the four directions of entrances. Most interesting is the walls all around the inside lined with many Buddhas and spiritual icons. Be... More

Not so far from Shwedagon Pagoda. Quiet and beautiful inside, perfect place to take a rest after a long walk in daytime.

This pagoda is located on Shwedagon Pagoda Road so a visit can be made on the way to Shwedagon Pagoda. Also known as the Diamond Reflections Pagoda, the green tiles covering the pagoda reflect the sunlight and make it shine. The tiled and mirrored alcove that runs along its side and rear are home to an assortment of deities. A... More

This is quite a nice little Pagoda, with it's mirrored exterior & the interior covered in tiny Buddhas. It's close to Shwedagon Pagoda so worth popping in. It doesn't take up much time, maybe 20 minutes, but it's quite different to other pagodas.
