It's a good pagoda to visit especially if it's your first one. If you've seen Shwedagon before, take a photo from the outside and move on!

Located in the middle of the city center roundabout like Arch de Triumph in Paris! The pagoda is lovely and better than many other pagodas in the city except Shwedagon. Arrive early morning to see cleaning ceremony and free from traffic jam. 3 USD for entry.

The most interesting part about Sule Pagoda is, that it is located in the middle of a busy roundabout in the center of town. The inside is as bustling as the outside, with pilgrims and tourists walking about. Foreigners have to pay an entrance fee and then usually a local guide drags you on a tour without asking. If you...

we were charged USD 3.- each for this temple and the person asked us to pay extra for keeping the shoes USD 1.- per person. Locals don't need to pay.

Spectacular on its on but pales in comparison with Shwedagon Pagoda. History is rich but you could read that online. Visit if you are interested or skip and go for Shwedagon if you just want to experience and visit a Pagoda.

If you have visited the biggest pagoda - Shwedagon Pagoda, I believed you will give this one a miss. But if you happen to watch the TV news, this pagoda is the landmark of Myanmar

Sule Pagoda is interestingly located on a busy roundabout in downtown Yangon. It's an average pagoda given the plethora of amazing examples all over Myanmar, but nonetheless worth a visit for 30 minutes. Just make sure you go here before Shwedagon.

I have seen many pagodas during my travels in Asia, there is nothing special about this one, the down side of it, it is that you have to pay to get in ,It is quite nice from the outside but it could be more well mantained, but once you are in Yangon I think it deserves a visit
