Most tourists don't bother with this smaller pagoda which is a shame as it's got a warmer more intimate feel to it being smaller than Shwedagon and not swamped with tourists. Chill and soak up the vibe. It's worth it.

This Pagoda stands in the centre of an extremely busy junction in the centre of the city and looks as though the traffic pollution is taking it's toll since the guilding looks tired and in need of help. Inside, there are the usual images with plenty of praying devotees, but in my view it is not a visit that requires... More

Sule Pagoda has a good location as it's in the middle of hectic traffic jams going on in the city of Yangon. And for that reason it's nicer place to look at from outside, as it's interesting to see all the chaos around it as the pagoda stands tall in the centre. But inside is typical pagoda you see in...

Liked: The Sule Pagoda has a very long history that no one ever remember exactly. Disliked: The Pagoda in the center of the city is not well maintained

It was our first visit in Yangon, the Sule Paya. We arrived at one of the entrance without knowing if we had to pay or not. Before going up the stairs many women throw you flowers, candles and other stuff in your arms and ask you to pay, its almost like if you dont have the choice, so you fill... More

At the very heart of the city this shimmering golden pagoda is a sheer delight to watch from all around. The city traffic goes all around the pagoda and so does the walking tour. It costs $2 to go inside and it is very quiet inside with devotees meditating quietly. Outside there are countless small shops occupied by astrologers and... More

Way more spectacular at nighttime from the outside. If you still want to visit go to this pagoda first. After being wowed by the Shwedagon Pagoda this one will fail to impress you. Worth the visit if you are in the area only

This is a "working" Pagoda. If you like, it's the parish church. You get a clearer idea of how Myanmar people worship. I Gree, go before seeing the Shwedagon Pagoda which is quite magnificent!
