Amarapura

Trip Planner Asia  /  Myanmar  /  Mandalay Region  /  Amarapura
The township of Amarapura reigned as the capital of Myanmar during the 19th century, until King Mindon decided to move many of its religious and royal buildings to nearby Mandalay. Now something like a suburb of the large city, Amarapura has a leafy visage and a relaxed atmosphere, enhanced by the wide, shallow lake at its center. Attractions in Amarapura include old bridges and walls, temples, pagodas, and palace ruins. Take stress off the schedule by using our Myanmar journey builder tool .
