Sule Pagoda

Sule Pagoda is located in the center of Yangon, at the junction of Sule Pagoda Road and Mahabandoola Road, Kyauktada Township. Sule Pagoda is one of the tremendous landmarks of Yangon. It is said to be over 2,000 years old and contains a hair given by the Buddha to two Burmese merchants. Sule Pagoda is 48 meter (152 feet) high and it was used by the British as the center of their grid pattern for the city when it was rebuilt in the 1880s.

The pagoda is surrounded by small shops and all the familiar non-religious services such as of astrologists, palmists, and so on.
