Pyay

Pyay was anglicized, as Proem after the Second Anglo-Myanmar war and in ancient times was known as Thaye-khittra (Srikshetra). Srikshetra, the ancient Pyu capital about five miles to the east, is an interesting place to be worth visiting because of their historical importance and archaeological sites. Pyay is an important commercial center for trade between the Ayeyawaddy Delta, Central and Upper Myanmar Baw Baw Gyi Pagoda and the Rakhine (Arakan) State. Pyay (Proem) is only 161 km north of Yangon traveling along a well-maintained highway by car. Several trains run daily from Yangon on the first railway line built in Myanmar in 1877. In the last few years, the railway branch lines have been extended north towards Bagan. Visitors can stop over in Pyay and travel on to Bagan and Mandalay. Pyay is situated on the eastern bank of the Ayeyawaddy River on a lovely location.

Interesting Places in Pyay are "Shwesandaw" Pagoda, "Sehtetgyi" Pagoda, "Baw Baw Gyi" Pagoda, "Be Be Gyi" Pagoda and "Payama" Pagoda. Other interesting places around Pyay are "Ahkauktaung", "Shwe Myatman Paya", "Shwe Nat Taung" Pagoda and "Shwe Bonthar Muni".
