About 30 minutes outside of the city centre in a taxi - and well-worth the trip. It's a good one and in a really lovely location...

Worth the visit! It's very calm in the morning, not too many people around. Inside there's the tooth relic, but no description of what you're looking at, so I didn't even know there was a sacred tooth. The intricate details on windows and doors are just super nice. The road to the pagoda is also very beautiful, lined by trees and you pass by a small lake. The official entry fee for foreigners is 3000 MMK
It's so peaceful there. It has 9 doors like A Ya Han, Thamma Tham Boaddaw, Weizza Sarana ThammamNaw,-------, Bagawar. We can offer flowers, water, money to Swal Daw Myat Pagoda. Moreover, we can take photos with beautiful scenes.
Swe Taw Myat Pagoda or ” Buddha Tooth Relic Pagoda ” is one of the most sacred worship in Yangon. A lot of travelers when traveling Myanmar have selected Swe Taw Myat Pagoda is the first destination. This temple is not very large but really nice with beautiful architecture. Unlike most relics of the Buddha, the Buddha’s relics at Swe Taw Myat are so well displayed that public can admire. The Swe Taw Myat Pagoda is located on a small hill called Dhammapala in the town of Mayangone, south of Yangon Airport. The main entrance is exquisitely decorated and located on Sware Taw Myat road. The easiest way to get there is by taxi, at a cost of about 5,000 Kyat from downtown Yangon. The Swe Taw Myat Pagoda was built to house and worship the sacred relics of the Buddha, believed to be a relic of Gautama Buddha who died 2,500 years ago. Along with the relics of Buddha’s tooth, which came from the original two ivories, all these artifacts are still preserved today. Sweat Taw Myat Pagoda was constructed with unique architecture. It is a large white building decorated with gold motifs, according to the ancient Ananda temple in Bagan, built in the late 11th century. Sweat Taw Myat Pagoda is a pagoda with four entrances in four symmetrical directions. The stairs to each entrance are surrounded by a pair of white and yellow Chinthe – a lion-like mythical creature – in Burma this is a mascot that people believe it is born to protect temples and pagodas. There are stalls inside the pagoda where worshipers can buy flowers, incense and other offerings. In the center of the great hall, the roof of the pagoda is composed of many small roofs piled up in the middle, with various large painted gold columns arranged harmoniously looks like a formal umbrella. Many details of this pagoda are decorated intricately. In the middle of Sweat Taw Myat Pagoda, the ivory burial site is stored in a small cylindrical glass box, placed on a cylindrical, multi-storey tall pedestal. The top has a towering roof with many small jade Buddha statues around. The people of Burma come here often carrying gold leaves to lap the statue of Buddha for blessing. Tourists should note that you have to leave your shoes outside before entering the pagoda.
Serene and spectacular pagoda that houses a tooth relic. There is ample parking space, less vendors than other pagodas, and quiet too
This place is not too crowded; peaceful and cool inside. It's not too hot like other temples. So I just stopped by for a while to make a homage, pray and do meditation.
