The most beautiful buddhist temple

The Shwedagon Pagoda is certainly one of the more beautiful temples that exists. There, you can see the customs of Buddhists prayers and offerings of water and flowers. It's the most sacred temple for the Burmese because it houses the relics of four Buddhas: Kakhusanda's staff, Konagamana's water filter, a piece of the Kaspassa's, and eight hairs of Gautama.

The stupa is 100 meters tall and is covered with gold leaf. Visitors must remove their shoes before entering and prayers are performed while circling counterclockwise. At night, it's a spectacle to see, full of the faithful praying

Sacred mountain

It's incredible how many people climb to the pagoda every day, either by elevator, or like me, climbing the hundreds and thousands of steps one by one which lead to the main pagoda at the top of the hill. Shwedagon exudes spirituality and you feel comfortable and relaxed watching the movement of faithful, ceremonies and prayers. Recommend up before sunset, and watch as the sun pagodas are lit and its golden color is accentuated with warm artificial light, perfect for turning the camera on long exposure.

The monks of shwedagon

Excellent

I was at the legendary Shwedagon Pagoda, one of the most sacred places in Myanmar. The golden domes, dozens of Buddhist monks praying, and the people's piety make this temple a magical place. I wanted to take a picture that combined all these extraordinary factors in a single snapshot. After surreptitiously following a monk who had appeared and disappeared behind the gold, I saw my goal: the perfect image. An image that embodied the splendor and spirituality of the Burmese people.
