"Then, a golden mystery upheaved itself on the horizon-- a beautiful, winking
wonder that blazed in the sun, of a shape that was neither Muslim dome
nor Hindu Temple spire. It stood upon a green knoll . . . 'There's the old Shway
Dagon,' said my companion . . . The golden dome said, 'This is Burma, and it will
be quite unlike any land that one knows about.

--Rudyard Kipling, Letters from the East (1889)
