Shwedagon by night - Yangon (Burma)
Description: Nowadays, only certain sections of Yangon still receive uninterrupted power, diplomatic and religious buildings, for the most part. From a plane at night, the city would remain invisible were it not for the glowing domes of the Sule and the Shwe Dagon temples. Even when the regime cut the power after Nargis, to prevent fires, the pagodas kept shining with a thousand spotlights. The neon lights that adorn each Buddha statue highlights the importance and pervasiveness of Buddhism in Burma.
