Today, we’re in Bagan visiting Shwezigon Pagoda, built by King Anawrahta in the late 11th century and recently (in the scheme of things) gilded in 1983. The Shwezigon pagoda has national importance in Myanmar as a temple of Theravada Buddhism, and hosts an annual festival during the month of Nadaw with attendees from all over the country.
Here’s a photo of the Shwezigon Pagoda from 1855. My, how things have changed!
