Botahtaung Pagoda

The Botahtaung Pagoda, located in the downtown area of the city beside the Yangon river, is one of the tourist attractions of Myanmar travel. The Pagoda has a spectacular view of the Yangon river. The tradition says that one thousand military officers from India came to Dagon escorting the Buddha's relics. It was named after those one thousand officers; "Bo" represents officers and "tahtaung" one thousand. The tradition goes on to say that two sacred hairs and unspecified amount of treasures are buried beneath the pagoda.
