Of all the areas of Shan State, Keng Tung Township has a civilization that is most different from Burma's - a characteristic of its inherent geographical location. Legend has it that Keng Tung was founded around a pond by a powerful wizard by the name of "Tungkalasi", which led to the name of the town " Keng Tung ", which means "walled town of Tung".
Today the name of the name of the sea that appears in the tales is Naung Tung (or Nong Tung, Nong Tong) Sea, which lies in the centre of the cityscape. Today's Keng Tung is also full of colonial-style structures, churches and ponds. Keng Tung, its administration centre, is of enchanting attraction - probably the most scenically attractive among those in Shan State.
