Yangon's story began simultaneously with the building of the Shwe Da Gone Pagoda 2600 years ago. Yangon's first historical name is Dagon. It was re-named Yangon by the Third Myanmar Empire founding father, Alaungpaya, after his conquest of Lower Myanmar in 1755, and opened the new section as Colonized Yangon when the British came.
Yangon is another name for Yangon used by the British. When it became one of the administrative and commercial centres of the British s India Empire, they built many structures such as the General Hospitals of Rangoon (Yangon), the University of Rangoon and the Supreme Courthouse and Minister's Bureau. Yangon's athmosphere is similar to that of the characteristic Southeast Asian town.
In contrast to the other Asian capitals, much of the area still has preserved in the form of rural architectural style and tree-lined streets. On January 4, 1948, Yangon was still the capitol of the Myanmar Army when the nation became overindependent. Now that all of Myanmar's federal agencies have relocated to Naypyidaw, the new town, Yangon will remain Myanmar's trading capitol in 2015, with over 5 million inhabitants growing and rapidly evolving.
There' s always something new in Yangon for the local people, also for the tourist there are always new sights to do. Sights in Yangon Downtown are mainly monuments such as pagoda, Buddha picture and cloisters. One of the most important sights is Shwe da graon, the first and most important Buddhistic monuments in the whole wide globe.
However, there are some other interesting sights that have nothing to do with Buddhism, such as the general Aung San Museum, the market and the country race town.
