Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Swe Taw Myat Pagoda, also known as the "Buddha Tooth Relic Pagoda," is a prominent religious site located in Yangon, Myanmar. With a rich history spanning 150 years, it holds immense cultural and spiritual significance. Established in the mid-19th century, the pagoda enshrines a sacred tooth relic of Gautama Buddha, believed to be one of his teeth. Over the years, it has undergone renovations and expansions, becoming a symbol of devotion and a place of pilgrimage for Buddhists. The pagoda's architecture showcases a blend of traditional Burmese and modern design elements, making it a captivating structure. Visitors are drawn to its serene atmosphere, ornate decorations, and the opportunity to pay homage to the Buddha's relic, making Swe Taw Myat Pagoda a timeless testament to Myanmar's religious heritage.

This place, I wouldnt recommend anyone to go. There is an entrance fee of $3000 Kyat and I dont get to see the tooth relic.
Firstly the tooth relic is at the centre of the Pagoda but you are not able to get near. Probably about 5m away and No one can see it unless you use a zoom lens. The TV is supposed to show the tooth but it is not working.
Well, that's about all.

About 30 minutes outside of the city centre in a taxi - and well-worth the trip. It's a good one and in a really lovely location...

The 36 bus route from the centre of town passes numerous pagodas on its way out towards the airport. A fare of 200 kyat will take you from the centre to the edge of town near the airport. The Swe Taw Myat Pagoda is one of three very close to each other. The others are the Naga Cave and the Mae La Mur. Fascinating buildings.

Excuse my joke. The temple is not tourist, but famous, because one of the Buddha’s teeth is kept here.

This is an important temple with an actual Buddha relic (apparently). Beautiful architecture and worth a visit. It’s a bit to the north of the city center so will take awhile especially if there’s traffic.

This is the place where the Buddha tooth is kept. Myanmar received the tooth from Sri Lanka long time ago. Most of the tourists don't know about this place. Even if you are not a Buddhist, you will admire the structure of the pagoda which is different than the other pagoda.

well worth spending and hour or so looking around the amazing structure. when we were there it was on the warm side so take plenty of water to drink as most places like this no shoes allowed so take footware that's easy to slip in and out of!

I lost count of the gilded pagodas and their names. They all were pretty sights and was interesting to see the admiration people had for their pagodas.

I cannot say I was crazy about taking my shoes off so many times, but I am surely glad to have experienced this very ceremonial culture in my lifetime.
