Pyin oo Lwin

Pyin oo Lwin, formerly Maymyo (Maytown) was founded by the British in 1896, and originally named after its founder, Colonel May of the 5th Bengal Infantry. It was designed as a place to escape the Mandalay heat. After the construction of the railway from Mandalay, Maymyo became the summer capital for the British colonial administration, a role it held until the end of British rule in 1948 and numerous colonial structures, ranging from impressive mansions to churches, remain.
