Additional Details:
Rangoon, the capital of Burma, is the Rome of the Buddhist faith. Consequently its temples, shrines, monasteries and religious monuments are numerous, many of them being of exquisite design and workmanship, a notable one being the Shwe Dragon Pagoda, the crowning structure in Rangoon. The pinnacle is 400 feet high. "Here will be heard the tinkle temple bells", Kipling wrote about.
