Buddhism is the main religion practiced here although there is no official state religion . In fact, to be more specific Theravada Buddhism. I didn’t even know there were different types of Buddhism, although one would think, just like other major religions that have their sects and branches, Buddhism has the same thing.
The Shwedagon Pagoda is a very famous Buddhist Temple here in Yangon. It’s official name is the Shwedagon Zedi Daw and also known as the Great Dagon Pagoda and the Golden Pagoda. It’s one of the top tourist spots to check out. It is absolutely amazing to see…the structure and design, the gold, the monks and nuns, the idols giving a whole mood. Here’s my visit!
