Do yourself a favor and visit Shwedagon Pagoda when it's nearing dusk. The character of the gold (and the huge diamond at the top) changes every minute in the melting sunlight and the temple comes alive with candles at night.

Sule Pagoda, Yangon, Myanmar (Burma)
I was peeking out of the window at the hostel where my friend was staying. And, there it was, the Sule Pagoda, a Burmese stupa situated in the center of downtown Yangon. I knew I had the best seat of the house to take the shot.
