Shwemawdaw Temple Complex

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

The Shwemawdaw temple complex is often referred to as the Golden God Temple. At 375 feet in height, the Shwemadaw Paya holds the record for the tallest pagoda in the country although the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon is usually credited as the tallest pagoda in Myanmar (at 98 meters - approximately 321.5 ft). Shwemadaw, along with the Shwedagon and Kyaiktiyo, are famous Mon pagodas: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shwemawdaw_Paya

Thanks all for the nice comments and the favourites, very much appreciated!
