It is a word combining the two words Yangon and kun, which mean "enemies" and "leakage" respectively.
The Yangon was established as Dagon in the early eleventh c. (1028â1043) by the Mon, who ruled Lower Burma at that age. 1755 King Alaungpaya took Dagon, re-named it "Yangon" and added villages around Dagon. Yangon was taken over by the British during the First Anglo-Burmese Wars (1824â26), but was given back to the government of Burma after the conflict.
In 1841 the town was burned down. The Yangon is situated in Lower Burma (Myanmar) at the confluence of the Yangon and Bago Rivers, about 30 km from the Gulf of Martaban. Myanmar. Yangon. White pages. et des Pages Blanches Yangon.
