The Stupa of Shwedagon Pagoda

Shwedagon Pagoda, Tachilek

The Shwedagon Pagoda in Tachilek is only a few minutes away from the border crossing by motorised rickshaw. This imposing spacious structure houses some important images. It's best to visit in the morning or evening as its exposed position makes it very hot to walk around and shoes are not allowed in the temple precincts.
