This photo gallery contains pictures of temples and palaces in Yangon. The 48m high Sule pagoda is believed to date back over 2000 years. The Botataung pagoda was built to house Buddha relics donated by the King of Syriam. The Royal lakes contain the Karaweik stone boat, a concrete replica of a royal barge, which nowadays is used as a restaurant and for cultural events.
