Thanks, Daisy: My camera and I are weak in night photography but in this case the lighting, reflection of the gold, and dark sky combined to make a memorable image. Thanks for comment, Daisy! :)

Shwedagon Pagoda is a show stopper, not many things are 2,600 years old and in such good condition. It is a 14-acre platform with the base on marble and many, many other pagodas around it. When I lived in Yangon, I was in a 10th floor apartment that looked upon Shwedagon, the view at night was magnificent. Thanks for comment, Amanda! :)

Thanks for comment, Chuck. Shwedagon is one of the oldest and most impressive Buddhist structures in the world. It is a pilgrimage site with thousands of visitors a day. I love it! :)
