Sule Pagoda

At the heart of the city, in the middle of a roundabout, stands the Sule Pagoda. It is believed to be over 2,000 years old, although no one really knows exactly when it was built, and its octagonal stupa is said to contain a hair of the Buddha. This pagoda is used by the faithful mainly to offer up prayers for everyday problems, and thanks to its central position it is in constant use. Immediately southeast of the Sule Pagoda is the small Maha Bandoola Park, which contains the Independence Monument - a large obelisk guarded by statues of Chinthes, mythical lions.
