Yangon City Hall

Yangon City Hall is the seat of the various departments of the Yangon City Development Committee, the city’s administrative body, the head of which is Yangon’s mayor. As the place where the city’s leaders meet, the building was also the point of many a demonstration protesting political decisions and situations. In 1964 for example, 200’000 people met here to support Thakin Kodaw Hmaing, an important leader of the peace movement. City Hall marks the center of Yangon and can be best viewed from the Maha Bandoola Garden right opposite the building. 

Construction of this building finished in 1936 and the city hall is now considered to be one of the most beautiful examples of combined British and Burmese architecture. It was designed by the prominent Burmese architect U Tin, who also planned Yangon’s central train station. U Tin’s style is well known for its fusion of the seemingly conflicting western and Myanmar’s indigenous styles. Accordingly, the newly repainted bright white City Hall building features tiered roofs, intricate ornamentations on the pillars and arches, but also the solid but elegant colonial build. 

Practical Info

You can find Yangon City Hall right in the center of Yangon, next to the Sule Pagoda and in front of the Maha Bandoola Park on Maha Bandoola Road. If you don’t want to go there on foot or by taxi, the Vandoola Park Bus Terminal and Sule Station are right nearby. You can’t go in there unless you are there for business, but the building is beautiful to look at from the outside as well.
