3,000 tourists visit Mandalay’s Myanansankyaw Golden Palace

 May 8, 2017
LAST month, nearly 3,000 holidaymakers visited Mandalay Palace, also known as Myanansankyaw Shwenandaw, the last royal palace of Myanmar.

Built by King Mindon in the 1850s when he shifted his capital from Amarapura, the Great Golden Royal Palace  located in the heart of Mandalay City is one of the more popular tourist attractions of Myanmar and is famous for its ancient architecture.

Visitors, including 150 foreigners, toured the Royal Palace in April, according to the administration department under the Mandalay branch of the department of archaeology.

Foreigners have to pay a Ks10,000 admission fee, while the authority collects Ks200 per head from local visitors.
There is no entry fee for children.

The royal palace hosts roughly 200 visitors daily.

The majority of visitors are students and observers from  Mandalay and nearby areas.

If officials are given advanced notice, groups will be given the background history of the palace and related structures.
