Myanmar is the land of monks and sages. Take a tour of the spiritual 6th century Shwedagon Pagoda with her golden light, incense-soaked pavilions, chanting and clanging of gongs. This towering gold leaf and bejeweled temple is one of Buddhism’s holiest places. As day dwindles, witness the ceremony of Mee Htun Bwe, where a thousand oil lamps flicker as a gift to Buddha in the hopes of receiving the soft glow of enlightenment.
