A Treasure of Asia : The Shwedagon Pagoda

You know that i'm designing applications for the Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and today i invite you to discover a new one called Asia Treasures - Shwedagon Pagoda, which is now available on the AppStore. .

Asia treasures is a new series of applications for Apple iDevices which suggests you to discover some of the most beautiful historical sites in South-East Asia. This App is just perfect to prepare a trip in Asia, for art lovers, or for anyone who wants to discover places of amazing beauty through hundreds of HD pictures.

Asia’s Treasures - Shwedagon Pagoda is all about one of the holiest Buddhist sites in Southeast Asia: the Shwedagon Pagoda in Rangoon, Myanmar. The Shwedagon Pagoda, located at the top of Singuttara hill in the heart of Rangoon, Burma’s capital, is a 98 meters high Stupa covered by thousands of gold leafs and surrounded by 68 stunningly beautiful temples. The beauty of the Shwedagon Pagoda is not only coming from its shining stupa or the magnificent temples all around it, but also because the place is full of devoted Burmeses praying all over the site day and night. The Shwedagon Pagoda is definitely one of the most holy of places in Asia and definitely a not-to-be-missed site if you travel in Burma.
