Seeing a beautiful pagoda in the middle of a traffic island is eye catching. That is what made this interesting for me - the contrast of the hustle and bustle of downtown Yangon, and the serenity and glamour of the pagoda. (Did not specifically visit - as went by it many times just going about my business).

Not much to see in this pagoda. If you are from Bogyoke market and will be taking a cab going to Sule Pagoda, don't just say ok to a 2000 kyats fare given by the driver, the pagoda is very near the market.

It may be that we were just a little "templed out" when we saw this - the last temple in our 72 hours in Yangon. It's not as grand as others, but is still a working one. Getting into it is not so easy as traffic circulates around it, so you have to weave in and out. There's a K1,000... More

We went as we were staying near here. It is lovely to see. It is 3,000k plus a donation as tourist have to leave there shoes at the gate. The ladies are pushy with the donation so stand your ground. You are paying an entrance fee too don't forget. We thought we might be able to go back at night... More

Sule Pagoda is situated on a round about and is near markets. It was walking distance from my hotel so very handy and I found it an interesting site. The pagoda is well kept and while in Yangon if you have the time it is worth a visit. I love temples and Pagodas and they are literally everywhere in Burma... More

Sule Pagoda has an intresting location situated on a city round about and is older than the golden Shwedagon Pagoda. As history goes the site and structure of the Shwedagon Pagoda was decided at this location making this pagoda even older than Shwedagon. It is more impressive from the outside would still suggest if you have spent the money and... More

It was cool to see a pagoda in the middle of the road. I thought that was really unique. It does seem to be just a regular pagoda otherwise. I did not go inside, but I figure there's a couple of statues of Buddha like all the other stupas and pagodas in the country. It is a good landmark in... More

Overpriced at 3$ and gives you nothing special to see and / or experience. Stick to the main one which is much more beautiful and once you have seen that, you surely do not need to see Sule Paya inside. Interesting to look at it from outside because since it functions like a roundabout to the main roads in Yangon

This pagoda is in the heart of the city being just next to City Hall, fronted by a popular people's park. It is in the same neighborhood of many colonial buildings. The pagoda and general location could be considered for a 2-3 hours walking tour. The pagoda was impressive as it comes into view driving into the city area. Lots... More
