Gold is the most precious metal. Yes, Myanmars love gold. Gold is used every where: pagoda, monasteries, accessories of the nobles, and so on. Most pagodas in Myanmar are covered with gold leaves, or for those who cannot afford use gold paint in the modern days.
When you get to Myanmar, or if you have ever been to Myanmar, this question (Why called "The Golden Land"?) will need not be answered. You will see golden things or gold-covered monuments in every direction you turn.
No wonder, this is called the Golden Land!
