Mandalay  

 

King Mindon, making it the capital of an independent kingdom for less than 30 years, had founded the town only 29 years earlier in 1857. Contrary to other Burmese towns, especially Yangon, Mandalay has not grown from a smaller settlement to town proportions. In 1857 Mandalay was set up in an empty area, because, according to an ancient prophecy, in that exact place a town would come into existence on occasion of the 2,400th

jubilee of Buddhism. The city was named after the Mandalay Hill, which is situated at the northeast corner of the present city. The hill has for long been a holy place and it is believed that Lord Buddha prophesied that a great city, metropolis of Buddhism, would be founded at its foot. It was King Mindon who fulfilled the prophecy.

Bagan

One of the most remarkable archaeological sights in Asia , if not the world, the magic of Bagan has inspired visitors to Myanmar for nearly a 1000 years.

Today, apart from spectacular sunset views and serene river cruises, Bagan is also the centre of Myanmar 's lacquerware industry.
