Pagoda No. 2100 in 360°
Most monuments of Bagan don't have a specific name and can only be identified with their unique numbers. Pagoda No. 2100 belongs to these anonymous monuments, nothing is known about its founder or construction date. Again, the stunning panoramic view of North-Bagan especially at sunset from the terrace of the building is the real attraction.

Construction of Shwezigon Paya was commenced by king Anawrahta (1044-1077) and it was finally completed during the reign of his son, king Kyansittha (1084-1113), the greatest monarch of Burma. It belongs to the most important monuments of Bagan since this building served as a prototype for later stupas built throughout the country. Similarly to other monuments of Bagan, it had to be repaired after the devastating earthquake in 1975. Now it looks more-or less original except for the gilded copper plates that were added in 1983-84. Alike all stupas, this temple also housed important Buddhist relics including Buddha's bone relics, a copy of the tooth relic at Kandy, Sri Lanka, and an emerald Buddha image from China.
