  • 司雷是仰光市中心的佛塔。根據傳說,它是建在大金塔之前, 菩薩特定時間,有超過2500年曆史。這個塔是坐落在一個非常繁忙的道路交叉口中間的環島。如果你要穿越這道路到塔那裡,你一定要看路上的車輛。佛塔會收一點小入門費。這個塔的周圍,有企業和商店,外市場攤位,等。我建議你一定要來看看,因為司雷塔在緬甸的政治焦點,扮演了很重要的角色。它是2007紅花革命的集合點。 
  • This is the main pagoda is located in the city centre as the dividers. By which all passenger cars will converge here. Walking around outside or go inside to pay, it has a public park adjacent to Maha Bandula.

  • A small pagoda in the city centre. Very cute and crowded is well worth a visit. Around there are people reading the hand.

  • Beautiful from the outside. However the entrance fee for foreigners signposted in USD is a bit of a turn off. USD $3 seems excessive. Something more in the realm of 1000 kyat might be more appropriate. We just admired from outside.
  • A major iconic paya downtown in Yangon. All roads seem to lead to this impressive building. They say it is older than the more famous and grand Shwedagon Paya.
  • To be honest, it may be better to just walk around it instead of going inside. You can view it from afar if you are on one of the streets that leads to it. Relaxing in the park across the street is good for people watching.
  • One of 3 sites that i think are definitely worth visiting (the other 2 being Shwedagon & Kyauk That Gyi temples). Sule is located in the downtown area, readily accessible, and u cannot miss it. In the evening, the pagoda is a prominently lit feature in the boulevard leading from the Shangri-La hotel.
  • Much smaller compared to Shwedagon Pagoda, but in the heart of the city. Be sure to explore some of the smaller rooms & altars surrounding the pagoda. Entry runs 3000 kyat for foreigners.
