Mandalay

Mandalay is the second largest city and the capital of Mandalay Region. Located on the east bank of the Irrawaddy River, the city has a population of one million. Mandalay was founded in 1857 by King Mindon and the royal city was officially named Yadanabon which means "The City of Gems". Mandalay was the last royal capital of Konbaung Dynasty before final annexation of Myanmar by the British in 1885. Today, Mandalay is the economic hub of upper Myanmar and cultural heart of Myanmar where refined arts, traditions of dance, music and drama prosper. Mandalay is well known for its fine gold and silver crafts, wood and marble carving, silk weaving and tapestry. Mandalay inherits many cultural heritages from the ancient Myanmar Kingdoms and its historical and fascinating places offer wonderful sights to behold. Famous attractions in Mandalay include Maha Myat Muni Buddha, one of Myanmar’s most revered Buddha images and Maha Lawka Marazein Kuthodaw Inscription Shrines, known as the “biggest book of the world”. In 2013, Kuthodaw was recorded in the UNESCO's Memory of the World Register.
