This is a city landmark for Yangon and it marks the city centre. What the Arc de Triumph is for Paris is what the Sule Pagoda is for Yangon. The pagoda is a 42 meter high golden stupa that is said to be over 2000 years old and house the hair of a Buddha. When the Brittish started to rebuild the city in the 1880’s they implemented a grid pattern in the city all around this pagoda. That is why this pagoda truly marks the city centre and it is a great starting location for any visit to the city.
