#GLAadventure visits the 2,500 years old Shwedagon Pagoda temple in Yangon, which is adorned with some 27 metric tons of gold leaf, along with thousands of diamonds and other gems. Second thing on #GLAadventure’s itinerary in Yangon is the famous elephant coach ride. These are the Chevrolet trucks that the British Army used in Myanmar (Burma) during the colonial rule, these are restored by the Asia Elephant Coach company.
Other highlights of Myanmar journey is Bagan – The valley of temples. Ancient diaries say that there were once 4446 temples over its wide plains but today only around 2200 remain. One of #GLAadventure’s favourites in Bagan is the steep staircase and the Ananda Temple which is famous for its Buddha statues.
Last but not the least, the visit to the local Gurudwara in Monywa which has existed for some 131 years, was truly special. The Gurudwara here was established by the Indian Army in 1885 and still lives on.
