Nice but visit before your visit to the Schwedagon

This is a lovely pagoda, very strange to find it in the middle of a cross roads with traffic flying around and big buildings all around. Peaceful inside and worth a visit.

Maybe it was because I visited Sule Pagoda after the Shwedagon, but for me it was not that interesting. Sule Pagoda is in downtown, very close to Chinatown. It's worth a visit if you are nearby.

If going to yangoon you have to go to this temple, not only because of its popularity but also because of the place where it stands in the capital near the plaza where the old court is. Very nice colonial building.

A beautiful Pagoda in Downtown Yangon, sitting on a large traffic circle at the intersection of 2 major roads. The British Colonists used Sule as a geographical reference point for their laying out their capital city of Rangon, all buildings were referenced from their locations from Sule Paya. Across from Sule are Yangon City Hall, and Maha Bandola Park, also... More

Only go to this if you haven't had enough gold after Shwedagon, it is a poor smaller sibling. Still it is an important viewing stop when you walk around the colonial district (follow lonely planet's colonial walk if you have it)

Huge temple with lots of vendors on the outside areas. Amazing to see the inner temples with spaces for meditating. Being here is a true witness to Theraveda Buddhism being very much alive in the Golden Land.

Sule Pagoda located in the heart of downtown Yangon, occupying the centre of the city and an important space in contemporary Burmese politics, ideology and geography. This pagoda is part of the Heritage List. According to legend, it was built before the Shwedagon Pagoda during the time of the Buddha, making it more than 2,500 years old.

Right at the city centre and roundabout in a busy surroundings. Good tourist spots as you could visit small shops surroundings the pagoda. Beware of those approach you to con you into bringing you somewhere else as their expect tips or commission from seller upon making a sales out from your purchase.

We saw this from the outside only and from nearly every angle. It was impressive but we didn't feel too tempted to go inside
