I wonder if that is real gold (leaf) on the temple and statues. I am thinking it might be!

Larry, by order of the military government of Burma the dome was covered with gold paint, against the wishes of many Burmese people. Originally the dome was white. A photo of that time can be seen in the Wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaunghmudaw_Pagoda
