We visited Sule Pagoda early on a Sunday morning and were surprised how busy it was inside. As other reviews have noted it's very small and lacking the atmosphere of Shwedagon Pagoda, but as we hadn't visited Shwedagon yet we weren't able to make a comparison at the time.
We very much enjoyed watching the streams of people making offerings at the various images dotted around the site.
This was the first time we'd seen a Buddha image with flashing disco lights around the head, although we did see this on many occasions over the next few weeks.
A simple walk from Traders Hotel and the first stop on a walking tour of Yangon.

How do you compete with shwedegon pagoda when in yangon? Nothing special about it. Several very beautiful features. Worth a 15 minute visit if in the area.

An Interesting contrast to the grandeur and beauty of Shwegadon but easy location to visit in your walk around downtown Yangon. Sule is particularly beautiful at night and can be appreciated from the walkway over the street. From Here you can observe the wild auto traffic in the roundabout without being in the middle of it...truly an experience

Situated in downtown Yangon we visited this religious site around midday it had none of the atmosphere of the Shwedagon Pagoda, with people reading news papers playing music etc
Its a $2 fee + a donation for leaving your shoes
It may be older but does not compare in beauty or atmosphere

Sule Pagoda located at the roundabout of Yangon Downtown, It was beautiful at night and I though it is a good time visit because was not hot. Visiting every Pagodas & temples, you have to walk bare feet if visit in day time you can not stay longer to absorb the atmosphere.

The Entrance fee is 2USD per person

One thing that you should beware when visit at night. Be careful when you cross the road because it was dark & they drove a car very fast.
