Mandalay Palace: For The Most Beautiful Views

Mandalay Palace is a historic palace located in Mandalay, Myanmar (formerly Burma). The palace was constructed in the mid-19th century by King Mindon, who moved the capital of Burma from Amarapura to Mandalay in 1857. The palace served as the primary residence of the Burmese monarchs until the country was colonized by the British in 1885.

The palace complex consists of a series of buildings surrounded by a moat, walls, and a gate. The buildings were constructed using traditional Burmese architectural styles and materials, such as teak wood, brick, and stucco. The palace complex also includes several gardens, ponds, and pavilions.During World War II, the palace was heavily damaged by bombing and fire. The restoration of the palace began in the 1990s and was completed in 2019. Today, the palace complex is a popular tourist attraction and a significant symbol of Myanmar's cultural heritage.
