  • With this name refers to the walls and everything inside, including the Royal Palace located in the most central part of the perimeter. The walls of about 1.5 Km on each side, although restored, represents the only partially survived the bombing) of World War II. Inside there are several military areas with no access. The main entrance is necessary to stop the car and show your ticket and documents at the check point. Inside, apart from the complex rebuilt the Royal Palace, there is the original Tomb of King Mindon and an interesting monument with statues of the main Burmese Kings and some interesting bilingual explanations on their realm.

  • A very stylish imperial palace, the buildings are very new, we go in the evening when there are many locals to enter. We'll check the tickets here and remember to keep the stub. Because there is no guide, what the specific history or allusions, but there is a sightseeing tower, rotating staircase is the perfect place for concave shape Oh!
