View of the Shwedagon Pagoda Complex in evening light
Myanmar (Burma), Yangon (Rangoon), March 2012

According to tradition, the Shwedagon has existed for more than 2,500 years. The stupa shown above is the main structure of the extensive temple complex. The original stupa fell into disrepair until the 14th century, when the Mon king Binnya U of Bago had the stupa rebuilt to a height of 18 m (59 ft). It was rebuilt several times and reached its current height of 99 m (325 ft) in the 18th century: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shwedagon_Pagoda
