Shwedagon Pagoda Yangon Myanmar


For a first upload to AirVuz, new contributor WanderlustWiseman brings us this excellent drone video of one of the most recognized landmarks of the Southeast Asian nation of Myanmar: the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon.  Also known as the Golden Pagoda, its golden dome stands 105 meters tall (344 ft.) and towers over the country's capital city.   Its age is not known with certainty, but it's generally believed to have been constructed over the course of the 6th-10th centuries AD.  It's the largest pagoda in this heavily Buddhist nation.
