Centre Of The Town

Looking around the down town area with the colonial building which is near to the Sule Pagoda. Little bit crowed with the traffic.

Oldest pagoda in town, just interesiting for this and the CBD and old downtown surrondings. The pagoda is engrided by shops and small businesses. Even so call religious, they are damaging all the interest and the beauty. The spirit is lost on my eyes so I dont enter to get taxed by overcharges fees asked to foreigners...

This was the first time I saw a Pagoda in the middle of a roundabout! Don't do a detour, but if you're around, have a look...

After my visit, I still like Shwedagon Pagoda more than Sule Pagoda. Nothing really impressive me. It only worth for 1 time visit.

It's like a smaller version of the Schwedagon Pagoda :-) near the Bogyoke Market. The place is properly maintained and it's a great landmark in the busy area of Yangon.

Yangoon is full of mystery and history! This is a greta starting point to all of that. You will see buddhism everywhere and these pagaodas are sanctuaries of peace. Spend an afternoon here and dont forget to free some of the birds outside this Pagoda! You can do so for a measly price and it symbolises setting free!

Pagoda in the middle of a roundabout. Place for itself, calm and peaceful. Take a little time and look to the side buildings and doors, we found some metalworkers and other interesting people.

This impossible-to-miss tourist attraction is located in central downtown Yangon and its landmark is commonly used as a reference for other tourist attractions such as Bogyoke Market, Circular Train Ride, Chinatown (all within 5-10 minute walking distance from Sule). Although not as impressive as big brother Shwedagon, Sule still offers a worthwhile experience with its unique design and ambience. Skip... More

The Sule Pagoda is located in the center of downtown Yangon. You can see it from just about everywhere. At night, it's brilliantly lite. The Stupa has hairs given by the Buddha himself. Myanmar temples are different from Thai temples as they are not administered by monks and monks do not live in them. They are administered by "the community".You... More

It's pretty small and nothing too extravagant, massive or extravagant. What is interesting perhaps, is that it is right in the middle of a road junction and has great historical significance. I visited the Sule Pagoda on the day of the final football match between Myanmar and Thailand in the SEA Games. It was a hugely awaited and anticipated event... More
