The main Pagoda is surrounded by minor stupas, bronze bells, and shrines containing 8 Buddha images which represents each day of week (Wednesday represents two days- according the Burmese astrology).
The word “Su” means “Meeting”. Located in the center of a busy commercial district, the Pagoda is the place where all roads meet. Therefore, the life of tradition and culture in Yangon also meet here… Nowadays, Sule Pagoda is surrounded by many attractions, visitors can have a short walk around the Pagoda, admire the typical colonial-style buildings of the City Hall, the High Court and the Independence Monument.
