2012 TravelMyanmarTravel Experience
The Shwedagon Paya (The Golden Pagoda)
We walked a couple miles exploring the city and the sun was going to set in a couple hours. I see in the distance the Golden Pagoda.
I’ve never seen anything so beautiful in my life.
I sat down on the tiled floor. Closed my eyes and let my mind wander into the energy of this place. My nose smelled the incense, my ears heard the chants and voices, my skin felt the air, my mind calmed and I exhaled.
This place is a holy place. It seemed like the central place where families came together to meditate and spend time with each other in a spiritual place.
