Culture Heritage Buildings in Mandalay City (Myanmar): A Geographic Approach to the Urban Landscape
- The cultural heritage buildings give a sense of past and of cultural identity. Those buildings encompassed the historical evidence, artifacts and beliefs. As being a last capital of Myanmar Konbaung Dynasty, there were various kinds of buildings which are still left out in Mandalay City. Since the City was founded in 1857, the King Mindon intended to have a very spacious capital by laying down the systematic town planning. The urbanization is taken place since that time. Therefore, the buildings were constructed according to the rulers. In this study the buildings are categorized into 4 groups: religious buildings, institutional buildings, and residential buildings, industrial and commercial buildings. Although the buildings regarding religions and institutions are already recorded by the Government Offices and Archaeology Department, there is lack of record on the commercial or industrial or residential buildings. Therefore, the major aim of this research work is to define, record and locate the cultural heritage buildings.
