Nan Myint Watchtower to reopen this month
Mandalay’s famous watchtower in Tada-U township is set to reopen in November after the restorations are completed.
Local newspaper The Myanmar Times reported that Nan Myint Tower from Inwa archeological zone has been closed for repairs since the first week of October.
The 90-foot-high tower was the only remaining building left on the King Bagyidaw’s Palace built in the 18th century and, in addition, it is an example of early 19th century Burmese architecture.
During restoration, the roof of the tower is being repainted and the floor is being replaced.
Though climbing the tower was restricted previously, the officials said visitors will be allowed to go up the tower after the repairing process is done.
