Mandalay

Fue la antigua capital de Myanmar antes de que los Ingleses se la llevaran a Rangoon , ahora Yangon. Por cierto hay un proyecto de cambiar la capital , en el 2007, a un lugar nuevo en el centro de Myanmar
que lo han sugerido los adivinos.
Los funcionarios de ocho o nueve ministerios tendran que desplazarse a la nueva capital por decreto.
Es una ciudad que tiene un gran peso cultural y religioso en el mundo Budista ya que aqui se concentran la mayoria de los monasterios del pais
Se nota la influencia inglesa en el planeamiento de la ciudad y en sus edificios , pero estos estan muy abandonados

It was the old Myanmar capital before the English took it to Rangoon,now Yangon.
By the way there is a project tochange the capital in 2007 to a new place in Myanmar center that has been recomended by the fortune tellers.
The Government employees of eight or nine Ministeries must change their residence by decreeIt
It is a town with a big cultural and religious weight on the Buddhist world as most of the country Monastries are located on this area
You see the British influence in the town planning and on his buildings though they are very deteriorated

Ciudades desiertas Deserted cities

Entre los siglos XIV y XIX , despues de la caida de Bagan los reyes decidieron crear nuevas capitales al mismo tiempo decidian abandonar las existentes. Asi que tenemos importantes monumentos religiosos que quedan como testigos de estas grandes ciudades .
Los edificios civiles han desaparecido ya que solo se utilizaba la piedra y el cemento en los edificios religiosos
Las ciudades estan a orillas del rio Irawady y son : Amarapura, Inwa, Sagaing y Mingun (las incluimos en Mandalay para no complicar mas las cosas )

Between the XIV and XIX century after the Bagan fall down the kings decided to make new capitals at the same time that they decided to abandon the existing ones.for this reason we have important religious monuments that are the witness of these great cities.
The civil buildings have dissapeared as the stone and concrete were used only no religious buildings
The cities are on the Irawady riber banks and they are :
Amarapura, Inwa, Sagaing y Mingun ( we are including them in Mandalay in order to have more clarity)
