Local legend is that Shwedagon Pagoda dates back over 2,500 years to the lifetime of the Guatama Buddha. The Lord Buddha, according to the legend, gave two Burmese travellers eight of his hair. The travellers brought the hairs back to the local King of the Yangon area who built the pagoda to house the sacred hairs. Some historians and archaeologists, however, disagree with the date of construction, which they place in the 6th Century.
