Shwezigon pagoda, Bagan, Myanmar 12Dec2015

Our tour guide Minh and driver took us
to Shwezigon pagoda after short visit 
to a local market close to the airport.

It is in Nyaung U where is just north of Bagan.

It is an amazing site to drive through
3000 pagodas and temples in Bagan.

 Wonderful view of Bagan from Bulethi pagoda

 Bulethi pagoda must be very popular spot
for viewing
sunrise and sunset over Bagan

Striking gold stupa is incredibly beautiful

 Shwezigon was built in A.D 1102
