Beautiful place! Not very crowdy. You can improve your karma and stick a golden paper to Buddha for 1000 kyats. Buy at the counter.

This was the last Pagoda I visited in Myanmar over a 3 week period. By far and away it was the most disappointing. Wonderful to see from the outside as part of the Yangon streetscape, but rather disappointing once inside. Head for the Shwedagon Pagoda and be richly rewarded with a far better (and grander) experience. You will not be... More

Very unique in the epicenter of yangon city center. Be wary of the money changers here. Temple is not on the scale of shwe dagon but interesting

This pagoda isn't the most impressive around but it's kind of cool. If you go be prepared to donate, you pay to get in then you will be asked for donations inside and then you will be asked to donate on the way out. You can see most of it from the outside if you more into just looking at... More

This pagoda is surrounded by traffic on a roundabout, not worth to visit. Go for Swedagon ... you will enjoy more!

BEWARE any scammers who are well-spoken in English, offer you to take you around and asks you your birth date so he can show you certain things (obviously never tell him your true details). He wouldn't leave me alone so I went through with it, and in the end he says he is after donations as he is a volunteer... More

Ok, so I know Shwe Dagong is the main show in town and it is stunning viewed from the outside but for my money Sule is more interesting. The scale is manageable. I loved seeing the little ship on a string taking donated gold leaf up to the pagoda. Many donations, many blessings!

Before i left to Yangon, i made a few research about the city. I tried looking for a few best photo spots for me to capture the best view to represent the city itself. One of it is Sule Pagoda. Located at a center of a roundabout, the pagoda looks stand out representing the culture or religion of the city.... More

It is impossible to ignore this Pagoda; it is in the middle of a busy traffic circle and the Pagoda is very prominent. We stopped by and stepped in to this while we wetre on our way to St.Mary's Catheral; the Cathedral is just a block away/10 minutes walk. Inside the Sule Pagoda, it was a calm ambiance. Worth covering... More
