National Kandawgyi Garden

National Kandawgyi Garden was first founded during 1915-16 by a British botanist, Mr. Roger. The original area of the Botanical Garden was 170acres of land and 70 acres of water spread totaling 240 acres. In several plots were planted 4840 trees planted, mostly of the pine varieties. Additionally, 575 different floral species and many exotic fruits, flowers and shady trees from overseas were acclimatized to grow in this Garden.

Maha Anthtookanthar Pagoda

The building of this Pagoda has a history of its own. The reason was that three marble Buddha Images sculpted in Mandalay were being transported to their planned destination in China. On this journey, one of the Buddha statues fell from the lorry and could not be reloaded due to its weight. After many attempts, this Image was left behind and the other two were taken on their way. At this place, a Pagoda was built for the travelers to pay homage.
