Yangon,has a lush, park-like and tranquil atmosphere as soon as one leaves the relatively small downtown area. The gently hilly city was once a small fishing village but renowned as the site of the Shwedagon Pagoda, the most revered place of worship for Myanmar Buddhists. The sprawling city was first fortified by King Alaungpaya, who marked his conquest of Lower Myanmar by changing its name from Dagon to Yangon, which means ‘End of strife’. Chronicles state that more than two thousand years ago, it was the kingdom of Okkalapa and in some suburbs of the city, relics of the early centuries have been found.
The British established Yangon as their capital in 1852 after they won control of Lower Myanmar. They built many beautiful colonial buildings, some of ornate red brick and others with cream-painted Corinthian columns rising three stories, Colonial buildings in private hands are not usually maintained due to exorbitant costs but those owned by the government are still magnificent. Some fine examples of colonial architecture can be seen on Pansodan Street and Strand Road.
In the bustle of central Yangon, Sule Pagoda is a small oasis of calm. The grand City Hall rises to one side of it while on the other two corners are a church and a mosque. Further down the road is a Hindu Temple. The different religions existing side by side in the city’s exact center symbolize the harmony among the country‘s races and religions. Yangon, the most heavily populated city in Myanmar with four million residents, ha streets that are safe any time of the day or night.
