Lion Throne Show Room The main exhibit of National Museum is the Lion Throne. The Lion Throne is over 150 years old and made of Yamanay wood and gilded all over. There are 8 different kinds of thrones but in numbers there are 9 thrones because two of them are similar. The Lion throne was used by King to adjudecate on law cases. Taken to Kolcata for display at the museum there it was returned to Myanmar after Independence in 1948. This is the only throne left intact as the other 8 were destroyed during World War II

Perhaps fortunately for the artifacts, but less fortunate for visitors, is that the lighting is very poor throughout the gallery, with intermittent fluorescents and the rare tungsten globe in a myriad of unused fittings. It is forbidden to take photographs in the museum and there are very few available on the web to illustrate a presentation

Plumeria (common name Frangipani) is a genus of flowering plants native to Central America, Mexico, the Caribbean, and South America as far south as Brazil but can be grown in tropical and sub-tropical regions. They are associated with temples in both Hindu and Buddhist cultures.

Burma is rich in natural resources, such as gems, jade, gold, tin, antimony, zinc, copper, tungsten, lead, coal, marble, limestone, hardwood timber, fishery reserves, natural gas, petroleum and hydropower. In addition, smiling, laughing, and hard working are the characteristics of the Burmese people. Myanmar is one of the poorest countries in East Asia, with an estimated GDP per capita of between $800-$1,000 and a poverty headcount of 26 percent. Most social indicators are very low. For example, 32 percent of children under five suffer from malnutrition. Myanmar is embarking on a triple transition – from an authoritarian military system to democratic governance, from a centrally directed economy to a market-oriented economy, and from 60 years of conflict to peace in its border areas. These transitions have the potential to create opportunity and shared prosperity for the people of Myanmar and for the country to resume its place as one of the most dynamic economies in Asia.
