Walking through old Rangoon
Customs house, Strand Road. Without the fact that so many of the building were in a state of neglect; and those who did not have tender written Burma on the entire front, one would think that they had walked out of the Hanshom cabin into old Rangoon.
Most of the people in ancient Rangoon came from the subcontinent of India - Klings on the Coromandel coast, Muslims from Bangladesh, Sikhs, Parsis and Gujaratis. These galleries show two images of old Rangoon. First is a view of Rangoon Colony - where some of the most beautiful buildings in Victoria still stand on this side of London today.
That part of the walk is east of the Sule Pagoda, where these monuments of civil and government are located. Here the streets are still reminded of London - Strand Road, Bank Road, Merchant Road, Pansoedan Road (once Phayre Road); and the ambience is like Shanghai or Singapore. In the second part of the galery, multicultural and multi-religious Rangoon is presented.
Westerly of and around the Sule Pagoda, in Chinatown and Little India, the fearless hiker can find more than a decade of different places of cult for the many Yangon faiths and people. This is the bright yet bright yet whitish facade of the British Embassy, Strand Road. Buildings.
