Sule Pagoda is a pagoda located on a roundabout in downtown Yangon, Myanmar. Prior to land reclaimation, the pagoda lay on an island on the Hlaing River.
The Sule pagoda is about 2,500 years old and contains a hair relic of the Gautama Buddha. It is believed that a powerful nat spirit called ‘Sularata’ resided at the site.
The Sule Pagoda is shaped like a dome and there are smaller stupas, 10 bells made of bronze and 8 Buddha images around it. These eight Buddha images represent the days of the week with one extra image for Wednesday.
