MINGALA TAUNGNYUNT

Sprawling north from downtown to lush Kandawgyi Park and east towards Pazundaung creek, Mingalar Taung Nyunt is a vibrant part of Yangon home to some of its most interesting architectural landmarks. On the western side is the towering Yangon Central Railway Station, the largest in Myanmar, designed in traditional Burmese-style. Mosques and Hindu temples dating back to the colonial-period are scattered through the township – the eastern side is an atmospheric place to linger at a teashop as the call to prayer washes over the city.
