Shwemawdaw Temple Complex

Shwemawdaw Temple Complex
Myanmar (Burma), Bago, March 2012

The Shwemawdaw Temple Complex dates back to the 10th century. It has been rocked by earthquake many times in its long existence. In the 20th century alone, three big earthquakes hit the Shwemawdaw. The Shwemawdaw was almost completely destroyed in the last major quake which happened in 1930. After World War II, unpaid volunteers began restoration work to rebuilt the pagoda: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shwemawdaw_Paya
