Mrauk U is an archaeological and tourist site, situated 11 km east of the Kaladan River in northern Rakhine State. It was founded in 1433, a capital of the Rakhine Kingdom from the 15th to 18th century. It is also known as Myo Haung, literally "Old City" in English. It was an important trade town for Portuguese, Dutch, Indian and Persian traders in 17 th century. We can reach to Sittwe, one hour flight from Yangon and continue to Mrauk U by private boat for 4-5 hours. There are a large number of ancient pagodas, temples and religious buildings around Mrauk U. The most notable temples in Mrauk U are the Shite Thaung Temple (Temple of 80,000 Images or Temple of Victory), Htukkanthein Temple (Htukkan Ordination Hall), the Koe Thaung Temple (Temple of 90,000 Images) and 5 Man Aung pagodas.

 

From Markus U we can go and visit to the Chin tribe village. The older generation of Chin women has intricately tattooed faces and often very large holes in their ear lobes.
