Fort Hsinkyon attracts increasing number of visitors year by year


Number of local and foreign visitors is higher at Fort Hsinkyon in ancient Inwa city, TadaU Township, Mandalay Region, this year, compared with the number of tourists last year.
“The guests visit the fort not only to view round the location of the fort but to enjoy scenic beauty of Ayeyawady River as it was built by Myanmar kings,” said a local resident.
The fort is located west of Hsinkyon Village in ancient Inwa city, south of Ayeyawady River. It was built by King Mindon on the place of a stockade in 1874.
Forts Minhla, Gwaychaung, Hsinkyon, Thabyedan and Asaykhan were built in the late Konbaung dynasty based on experiences of Kinwun Minister on his tour of western countries. The fort is formed with three walls and one moat.—Than Zaw Min (IPRD)
