  • It is a beautiful colonial-style buildings. It is a mansion inhabited by Aung San Suu Kyi's father, General Aung San. On the first floor has living room, second floor bedroom or den. On the second floor only shoes, so take off your shoes and go up. Unlike the temples of Myanmar, here, take your shoes off, and wearing socks or stockings are also okay. Passed away, drowned in a pond in the garden of the mansion of the 2 Gen Aung San's brother ended up with it. On the second floor Aung San Suu Kyi, the first brother, brother of second bedroom. You can see the rare photographs of children around Aung San Suu Kyi and the generals. I think they are going deeper and if you have time to visit the Myanmar.
