Shwe Maw Daw 2
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Shwemawdaw Pagoda or 'Great Golden God Pagoda' was built around 1000 years ago and located in Bago. It is one of the famous Mon pagodas. It was originally built to a height of 23 meters and was rebuilt higher several times until it finally reached its present 114 meters in 1954, and it is the tallest pagoda in Myanmar.|
It was destroyed several times due to earthquakes, including one in 1917 and another in 1930. The upper parts of the pagoda which was collapsed in 1917 earthquake remain at the site.
