“Very Beautiful”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Another glowing, gold pagoda. Very worth a visit and easily accessed cheaply by taxi. Definitely one of the main pagodas worth a visit.

“A General Home”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

Knowing the history, the General lived there for only a few years. I would have liked to have seen more "stuff". The home is basic as there are only a few interesting items such as the general's library. However, if you respect Burma and the General's family, it is worth a visit. Architecturally, the home is large with Victorian gingerbread decoration. Unfortunately, some areas are falling apart such as the kitchen.

“Peacefulness centred on a busy Roundabout!”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

Our first taste of Myanmar's Pagodas - take your shoes off and walk barefoot (I was surprised that it was not kept immaculately clean underfoot with there being so many volunteers around). There's a tranquility to Sule pagoda and its easy to forget its located right in the middle of a busy traffic roundabout. Everyday people are dropping in to offer prayers, blessings and make their wishes which is simply lovely. Its best to find a quiet spot and sit down to watch this world in motion.

“You can give it a miss”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

When you have seen Shwedagon Pagoda, it is ok to give this one a miss. It pales in comparison to Shwedagon.

“You cannot miss it”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

A lot of travellers confuse Sule Pagoda with the Schwegadon from the outside, as Sule Pagoda is more visible throughout the city. Once inside, it's easy to tell the difference. Worth a visit though.
