The former garrison church , All Saint’s Anglican Church

This town was made famous as the summer capital of the British to escape the the heat of Rangoon and Mandalay as it lies over 1000 metres above  sea level. The route from Mandalay is just under 50kms long, over goods roads which rise steeply, and many make a day trip from the old royal capital, while others make it a base to travel further on, possibly by slow train over the Goteik Viaduct  towards the old Shan capital of the Shan saopha of Hsi-paw.

When the British were advancing on Mandalay during the 3rd Anglo Burmese war in 1885, there was a plan for King Thibaw to escape to Pyin oo Lwin or Shwebo, but he decided to stay in his palace.

Today we can explore many of the often passed locations on the route to Bago, and going on further to the Sittang River and Golden Rock, and further still to Mawlamyine and Thanbyuzayat.

In 1942 the muddled planning and confuse leadership of the British met the determined, war experienced and tactic driven Japanese invasion.

In 1945 the diseased, ill equipped and defeated Japanese army retreated along these same roads and railway lines, routed by the reformed, brilliantly led and well equipped British Indian army – many of the units being those same who were in the shameful retreat of 1942.
Heading north out of Yangon we pass the  the Taukkyan Military Cemetery and still heading towards Mawlamyine, one of the first locations along the route is Hlegu

Kiplng's PagodaIf you are staying in Mawlamyine and get up early, you can have a fruitful visit by driving south to to various locations near the city and then return to explore the the sites of old Moulmein itself.

After the first Anglo Burmese War the British took the territory of Tenessarim  and the Arakan, which were put under the direct rule of British India as provinces, and the  capital became Moulmein ( Mawlamyine) .

There are many old buildings, if you know where to look. Burma is changing fast and even this former  back-water is humming with energy.
