Sule Pagoda

Sule Pagoda is situated right in the center of Yangon. The Sule Pagoda is said to be over 2,000 years old and to enshrine a hair of Buddha. Its ‘Mon’ name ‘Kyaik Athok’ translates as “the pagoda where a Sacred Hair Relic is enshrined.” The pagoda is unusual in that its octagonal shape continues right up to the bell and inverted bowl. It stands 46 meters (152 feet) high and is surrounded by small shops and all the familiar non-religious services such as astrologers and photo studios.
