3/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web
At the center of the nation's former capital, Sule Pagoda is an octagonal structure surrounded by bustling streets and buildings from the colonial era. Examine the 44 m (144 ft) tall pagoda's lavish ornamentation and see how a steady flow of devotees come to bring offerings and revere the enshrined strand of the Buddha's hair. Besides touring the sacred compound, you can also visit nearby shops, which offer palmistry and astrology services, along with religious souvenirs and gifts. A visit to Sule Pagoda represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Yangon (Rangoon) itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • Far from Golden to night towering in the center of the Boulevard's appearance is recommended. Interesting contrast with the bustle of the street. Around downtown is so good for shopping, eating and drinking.

  • You might be confused when your taxi drops you off here instead of Shwedagon Pagoda, but don't be disappointed, Sule is smaller, but it's still beautiful. It was not crowded when we visited, so we got...  read more »
  • Located at a very busy roundabout in center Yangon. Try to take some pictures from the opposite park (which is also nice). Not much else to see though... 
  • Although not as big as Shwedagon, this Pagoda is a stunning small temple. The Burmese at the entrance are friendly and helpful. Shoes and socks can not be worn but they will keep them safe for you when you pay the $3 entrance fee. Be sure to ho early or late in the day as the grounds are very hot to walk in at midday. Catching the view of the pagoda at twilight is especially beautiful.
  • One of the most popular pagoda in Yangon and even in Myanmar. The best times to visit are early morning, morning, evening and night but not too late night. Although the place is small, there are Myanmar's Independence Monument park and Yangon city hall very close to pagoda . If you are a photographer, those places are great photo opportunity in golden hours.
  • If you have visited Shwedagon Pagoda (and I insist you do), then Sule Pagoda is markedly similar. I would recommend visit just either one of them, but in terms of historical values/impressiveness, Sule Pagoda is no match. On the bright side, this pagoda is located right in the city centre.
  • Ayuu mg ye min soe nae yout kae kyune
  • Sule Pagoda. Why people call golden land because a lot of Pagoda are Gold color. That why?
