PowerPoint Presentation: Myanmar 71 Yangon Bogyoke Aung San Market PowerPoint Presentation: Scott Market was renamed Bogyoke Aung San Market in honor of Burmese nationalist hero General Aug San (1915-1947). Bogyoke Aung San Market is a major bazaar located in central Yangon. Known for its colonial architecture and inner cobblestone streets, the market is a major tourist destination, dominated by antique, Burmese handicraft and jewellery shops, art galleries, and clothing stores PowerPoint Presentation: Scott Market was built in 1926, late in the British rule of Myanmar named after the Municipal Commissioner of the time, Mr. Gavin Scott. After Burmese independence in 1948, it was renamed after Bogyoke (General) Aung San. A new wing of the market was added across Bogyoke Market Road in the 1990s. The market structure is listed on the Yangon City Heritage List. PowerPoint Presentation: The saung (Burmese harp) The thirteen to sixteen strings of the harp angle upwards from the string bar to the string bindings on the lower part of the curved arch of the neck. Traditionally, tuning was accomplished by twisting and adjusting the string bindings. PowerPoint Presentation: The Pyinsa Rupa is a mythical Burmese creature specifically of the Myanmar culture. PowerPoint Presentation: The Pyinsa Rupa has the trunk of an elephant, the fangs of a lion, the scales of a carp and the wings of a toenayar (dragon), or sometimes a bird, and the body a deformed horse. Myanmar Xylophone which is known as Pattalar is usually made up of bamboo or copper for its bars. There are 24 bars in current Pattalar though there were only seven for its very first version. And it’s not an easy process to build a Pattalar up because it is needed to choose the size, thickness and age of bamboo. PowerPoint Presentation: The saung (also known as the saung-gauk , Burmese harp, Burma harp, or Myanmar harp) PowerPoint Presentation: One of the last countries to open up to the world, Myanmar offers refreshing and unspoiled delights to the jaded travelers PowerPoint Presentation: Souvenirs & Gifts Nandawun NANDAWUN, the biggest privately owned craft centre in Myanmar offers one-stop shopping for travelers, as well as whole sale exports for dealers all over the world.

PowerPoint Presentation: The saung (also known as the saung-gauk, Burmese harp, Burma harp, or Myanmar harp) is an arched harp used in traditional Burmese music. The saung is regarded as a national musical instrument of Burma. The saung is unique in that it is a very ancient harp tradition and is said to be the only surviving harp in Asia. PowerPoint Presentation: Recently constructed harps have machine heads or tuning pegs to make tuning easier. The traditional silk strings have also been supplanted by nylon strings, but silk-stringed harps can still be seen. A full-sized harp has a body of about 80 cm long, 16 cm wide, and 16 cm deep, and the arch rises about 60 cm from the body. Smaller harps have been made for smaller players. The harp is played by sitting on the floor with the body in the lap, and the arch on the left.
