In these parts, just another Pagoda

It is under construction in parts and is surrounded by really busy traffic. Golden Pagodas are common around here. There is a big park nearby.

This pagoda is located in the city center, sometimes it is called meeting pagoda. Nothing special except the octagonal shape which is rare compare to other rounded pagoda. The beauty of the pagoda is diminshed due to the shops surrounding it at the bottom

This Pagoda cost $3 to get into and when you got into the compound there wasn't too much to look at, the compound is pretty dirty without much of interest. I'd reccomend just admiring Sule Pagoda from a distance as it's probably better.

This old dirty pagoda with a $3 fee per person is only worth a stop to say you were there and to take some more pagoda photos. We had to walk up a very dirty covered with bird dropping elevated steps or the roundabout street to get there

Where else but in Yangon would you find a large Pagoda acing as a roundabout.? For a good panoramic photo climb the overpass back from the pagoda.

It's the baby of the pagoda's compared to Shwedagon but when wandering around its worth a look. It's much smaller so you can walk around in 15mins unless you want to leave an offering or meditate. If you have been to the Shwedagon first then this will be disappointing as it's the poor cousin but the ladies at the front... More

Not that I disliked it all but I don't really see the fuzz about this one. Go to Sule before going to Shwedagon. Maybe that was my mistake. Shwedagon is so beautiful that makes Sule look like just another ordinary temple.

The Pagoda is poorly maintained and there's nothing much of interests to see inside. It's very small and you can finish visiting the place within a very short time.

This pagoda is actually a round about that the traffic passes by. The pagoda is quite pretty, but not well maintained though. There are more beautiful things to see in Yangon, but go if you must!I felt that it was worth my while and its free to get in.
