Sule Pagoda is around less grand and 100 years younger than Shwedagon Pagoda. However, that doesn’t mean that it’s not worth visiting. In fact, it might be better to visit Sule before visiting Shwedagon. Sule looks similar to Shwedagon, covered in gold. In a country with thousands of golden pagodas, Sule is genuinely something special.

The most striking thing about Sule Pagoda is it appears out of nowhere in the busy city streets, almost like it was misplaced in the center of an intersection. It's a great example of how interwoven religion is into daily Burmese life.

We usually go to this place to pray as it is in the middle of the city centres and very convenient to travel to. A bus stop is just nearby.There's the government building,church, shopping centres and park near this pagoda.

There are not many religious shrines in the world that can double up as a roundabout, but Sule Pagoda does a great job at it AND more. This Buddhist shrine is said to be much older than Shwedagon and is a must visit.

My guide said this place was not worth going but I went anyway as it was near and within walking distance from my hotel. He was right, it was much smaller than Shwedagon Pagoda. I stll enjoyed the walk as I got to see the surrounding neighborhood ie cityhall and many other colonial style buildings. Do visit this place before you visit Shwedagon; otherwise, all other pagodas look less interesting

Tucked into the center of Yangon, the pagoda is one of the most beautiful in the city. They charge entrance and during the night they make a kind of light show in which all the interior and exterior sanctuaries are illuminated.
