Shwedagon Pagoda seen from Lake Park of Kandawgyi

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by 한조 정

The symbol of Myanmar, Yangon's Shwedagon Pagoda. All embellished with gold Shwedagon pagoda shines brilliantly as we can not see directly. At sundown, as the gorgeous final decoration, the scene faintly illuminating the whole city of Yangon was impressive. The wide view of the scene captured in pictures in Shwedagon Pagoda and facing the Kandawgyi lake park.

Location: Yangon, Myanmar
