when the last"' koung baung dynasty ""the king who is face the first Anglo-Burma war in 1824.Before that time he send the one who is really clever and quite good prince to the region of Monywa.Then He arrived one of the place was make him to see around.Then he went up and looked around then he met one of the lady who fried the pancake.So the prince go there and asked what specially interest place here and around?
The pancake lady said...,that depends on your interest.So that is hit to the prince heart to get warm,he think she is really clever ,OK finally they had good time and marriage and settle there,
The king heard about that news then king allowed the prince can stay and ruin there.so that is the original story of the town of monywa,
