Everywhere you go; there's entrance fees for foreigners.... And when you try to photograph this sight from afar; the local cops would stop you with just "NO". They couldn't even have a simple English conversation... Only "NO"... Tourism at it's worst....

Being the center of downtown in Yangon, you will see this pagoda from everywhere. It is nice to see from outside but nothing special inside. There are thousands of more impressive and bigger temples all over Myanmar.

This pagoda is actually used as a roundabout, just walk by it and look at it and all the traffic. On floor level the pagoda is filled with shops, further than that it isn’t that special
