Hawnan Building reopens to visitors

HawHsipaw, 4 June—The historic Hawnan building in Hsipaw, Shan State, has reopened to visitors after a closure of more than three months.
Built in 1924 by the 87th successor Hsipaw chieftain Sao Ohn Kyar, the building was home to Hsipaw chieftain Sao Kya Seng, wife Mahadevi Thu Sandi and daughters Mayari and Keinnayi from 1948 to 1962. It is now in the care of Sao Oo Kya and wife Daw Sao Sam Phone. Daw Sao Sam Phone explains the history of the building to visitors in English, Myanmar and Shan. The building was temporarily closed as of February 2015 so she could receive medical treatment.
The building is open from 9 am to 12 noon and 3 pm to 6 pm daily. Hsipaw Ko Latt
