The British used this pagoda as the center of the city when they began laying out and building ( or, rebuilding lol ) Rangoon, and the cardinal points had roads leading away from here. A very active pagoda, it is quite interesting to see and most certainly worth a visit. You will find ladies outside with caged birds that, for... More

After two weeks in Myanmar and after visiting a lot of pagodas, we were not impressed by Sule Pagoda. It is located downtown in the middle of a roundabout, so it is more noisy than other pagodas. We found the pagoda quite untidy- with many small rooms in the outer circle, not knowing whether we were allowed to enter or... More

Sule is virtually the same, yet not as good as Botahtaung. If you only want to see one go to the other one.

The other pagoda wanted much more money. These folks wanted half, but then charged for holding our shoes. Whatever. So spiritual! It's in a tough neighborhood for women. I'll just leave it at that.

Uninspiring and expensive foe what you see. I found the stalls round the base of the pagoda the most interesting part of the visit.

It is the real city center of Yangon, almost all Bus lines in town are starting or ending near this pagoda. The surrounding area quite noisy but you can learn a lot of local lifestyle within this small pagoda compound. The best time to visit is early morning before breakfast. You will worth to see the tradition of Buddhist people.

$3 for a small pagoda in the city center, not really worth the visit. I prefer Shwedagon. There is a lot of traffic around Sule.
