We paid 3000 kyats as entrance fee. But the pagoda floor is quite dirty, i don't know why they put a modern clock front of Budda statue which look terrible. The renovated decoration look "cheap". A monk asked me for some donation and I donated some kyats, am not sure if this is appropriate donation. Should visit Shwedagon instead.

This is a very nice pagoda located in the center of a very busy traffic circle in central Yangoon. It's a busy place with lots of people selling lots of things in all the entrances while people come to do their daily prayers in the midst of all the hustle. Interesting.

Wonderful site in Yangon. One of the 'must see' attractions not to be missed. I saw it as part of a city tour.

There are alot of Pagodas to catch-up upon BUT this is one of those you HAVE to see. Its surreal BUT just pay attention that you needn't be forced to PAY / DONATE for shoes, water etc..It is your choice. But do pay the entrance fees :)

The pagodas are grand and beautiful. The flower sellers outside the pagodas have nimble fingers and you must stop by to watch them.

It's surreal that in the middle of one of the busiest traffic circles in the city sits this beautiful 2000-year-old golden pagoda. It's also at the heart of commerce as shops ring the temple's outside perimeter. There are also lots of tea shops nearby to enjoy a short tea break with snack.

Sule Pagoda is referred to as the second 'must see attraction' in Yangon. Prominent in the part of Yangon in which it stands, I would not value it as one of the more worthwhile visits, and would far prefer to visit the Water Temple outside the Capital. The park and Municipal buildings nearby are very impressive and worth visiting instead!

It's a great landmark for walking about the city, but the lowest level is filled with neon signs and tinky shops. There are other Pagodas around town that are more worth your time. By the way, you'll see vendors selling handfuls of corn for pigeons or have cages full of birds. Try not to disrupt this process by walking smack... More

It's a small version of Shwedagon Pagoda and there really nothing much to see inside. You may skip this one if you have been to Shwedagon Pagoda and try not let the kids to guide you around as they will ask for USD30 afterward.
