Pyin Oo Lwin Kandawgyi GardenOo Lwin Kandawgyi Pyin Garden
Pyin Oo Lwin has very nice year round wheather, it has colourful, nice cathedrals & it is known as the top terminus in Myanmar. Pyin Oo Lwin's primary draw is the National Kandawgyi Garden (former Botanical Garden), established in 1915 by the Alex Rodger Forestry Commission.
There is a petrified wood museum, orchid garden, butterfly museum. Do not miss one of the large backyards in Burma..... After a few hour's walk through the botanic garden. It is a great place to see local people and even people from different areas of the city.
Lovely backyards for a stroll with a small pond, it was good to move from Mandalay. It is a favourite place of recreation for the local people. It is a well-kept garden. An ideal place to unwind, take a stroll or have a picknick. Were you in the Maymyo Botanical Garden (Kandawgyi National Park)?
Kandawgyi National Botanical Garden (Maymyo Botanical Garden)
The Botanical Garden was created in 1915 by forest researcher Alex Rogers. It was designed, chosen, localised and set up as an internationally renowned garden. More recently, after the garden was set up in 1917, Mr Otway Wheeler Cuffe and his spouse Mr Charlotte Wheeler Cuffe assisted Mr Rogers with the garden's design, education, landscape design and construction to London's Kew Gardens.
The Botanical Garden was transformed into the National Botanical Garden with a surface area of 240 hectares on 1 December 1924. It has been well maintained by the Ministry of Forestry. The garden was restored in 2000 and now has great scenery and views. One of the towers was constructed on April 11, 2002 in Kandawgyi National Park and opened on December 18, 2003.
It has 12 floors, of which 10 are for watching the lovely garden scenery. Orchids, children's playground, pagoda island, tea house, souvenir centre, cascade garden, rainbow fountain, swamp path, rock garden, bamboo garden, Croton garden, pine forest, wooden footbridges, rain forest, stroll in aviary and Takin compounds are other interesting places that you can see in the national Kandawgyi gardens.
