    A few blocks East of Strand Hotel along Yangon River lies Botataung Pagoda. The original pagoda was destroyed by allied bombing during Second World War but the site has a legendary history as long as that of Shwedagon or Sule Paya and is supposed to house more strands of Buddha's hair brought to the site by a thousand soldiers hence name which means '1000 officers'. The rebuilt stupa is hollow inside - possibly only hollow stupa in world! - and many relics not hair though are on display. While not spectacular like Shwedagon, the river-front setting and hollow stupa make it worth visiting.
