Main Stupa of the Shwemawdaw Temple Complex dating back to the 10th century
Myanmar (Burma), Bago, March 2012

The Shwemawdaw Paya is a stupa located in Bago, one of the oldest cities in Myanmar. It is often referred to as the Golden God Temple. At 375 feet in height, the Shwemadaw holds the record for the tallest pagoda in the country although the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon is usually credited as the tallest pagoda in Myanmar (at 98 meters - approximately 321.5 ft). Shwemadaw, along with the Shwedagon and Kyaiktiyo, are famous Mon pagodas: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shwemawdaw_Paya
