Our first stop will be at the Shwezigon Pagoda, built by King Anawrahta in the early 11th century as a religious shrine. The Shwezigon Pagoda's name was derived from Ground of Victory Jeyyabhumi and was associated with the two great kings Anawrahta and Kyansitta for their backing of the Buddhist religion. A well-preserved monument, consecrated by one of the most notable royalties of old Bagan, it truly is all awe and splendour when entering the compound of the gilded Shwezigon Pagoda in Nyaung U.
