If you should visit Sule Pagoda before you visit Shwe Dagon Pagoda. Small, cramped and dirty. I would pass on the experience. Watch the money takers for tickets as they will try to give you Kyat change in large 1000 size. These cannot be used elsewhere. I gave one to a beggar as it was useless to me. Bring a... More

This pagoda does not have the grandeur of the Shwedagon, however, it's very well positioned in the dead center of the city and walking distance from most city-based hotels/other attractions. It's a smaller pagoda that is kept very clean, and whilst there is an entry fee, you are largely left to your own devices (no guides or many other tourists... More

A smaller but similar version of the Shwedagon Pagoda, which naturally suffers in comparison. Worth popping in to see if you are in town, but probably not worth a dedicated visit if you have a full itinerary in Yangon.

Walking up Mahabandoola Rd towards Sule Pagoda is a wonderful experience. A Pagoda in the middle of a traffic circle is definitely interesting and it is quite beautiful from the outside. We also found the inside to be lovely and it was very quiet when we were there.

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.
