The city is home to the gilded Shwedagon Pagoda – Myanmar’s most sacred Buddhist pagoda. Also called the Golden Pagoda, it is a gilded stupa that stands 326 feet tall and dominates the city’s skyline.
Toshi’s father Hiroshi also made a print of the same subject entitled “Golden Pagoda in Rangoon” from the “India and Southeast” Series.
