Botahtaung Pagoda - Yangon

Botahtaung Pagoda

The Botataung Pagoda is located by the Yangon river bank in down town. It is Yangon’s highly revered temples, the pagoda enshrined sacred hair relic of the Buddha inside. The name Botataung means 1,000 military commanders, ta-taung is 1,000 in Burmese, referring to the 1,000 military commanders who formed to pay respect to the relic when it was brought over to Yangon from India over 2,000 years ago. Unlike many of the other stupas, Botataung pagoda is hollow and it allows the public to walk through it. Inside are glass show cases containing ancient artifacts and Buddha images which were discovered when it was bombed by the allied troops in 1943. Right outside the pagoda is the Botataung Jetty, with a nice view of Yangon River.
