Type: Religious Sites, Monuments/ Statues
Description: The city’s biggest tourist attraction is this immense Buddhist shrine built approx. 2500 years ago.
“Brilliant, peaceful, welcoming. The pilgrims are warm and friendly. The structure itself is awesome and overwhelming.”
“It’s a beautiful and serene place. You just can’t miss it. You’ll spot the golden peaks of the pagoda from the main roads leading to it. It is magnificent. But the best enjoyed at night. We can go there again and again.”
“Lots and lots of stairs, but walking up to the top and seeing the largest Buddhist pagoda in the world is definitely a unique experience.”
