The Myan Nan San Kyaw, or Royal Palace, is said to be the first palace to be built in Mandalay.
The Palace was constructed between 1857 and 1859 as part of King Mindon’s founding of the new royal capital city of Mandalay
The palace itself is at the centre of the citadel and faces east. The location was chosen with the auspicious omen and astronomical calculations.
Much of the palace was destroyed during World War II by bombing; only the royal mint and the watch tower survived. A replica of the palace was rebuilt in the 1990s with some modern materials. Today, Mandalay Palace is a primary symbol of Mandalay and a major tourist destination.
