The small city of Pyin Oo Lwin (Maymyo), founded by the Brits as a place of refuge before the high temperature of spring, still has a strongly anglicized feeling. Kolonialism in the city can be dated back to the end of the nineteenth century, when the Brits came after the capture of Mandalay at the end of the Third Burmese War.
After Colonal May, the commandant of the position and vet of the mutiny, the name of the city was changed to Maymyo (May Town). During 1896 a standing army base was set up in the city, which later became a mountain resort and Burma holiday home for the UK government due to colder weather.
Pyin Oo Lwin was also an important education center during Britain's reign, where the English high schools of the ruling class such as St. Albert's, St. Joseph's Convent, St. Mary's, St. Michael's and Colgate are located. In 1989 Maymyo was re-named Pyin Oo Lwin when the Burmese authorities handed over kolonial title to the Burmese name before Britain ruled.
