Kandawgyi Lake

Kandawgyi Lake is one of the two major lakes in Yangon. Located east of the Shwedagon Pagoda, the lake is artificial, water from Inya Lake is channeled through a series of pipes to Kandawgyi Lake. It was created to provide a clean water supply to the city during the British colonial administration.

Karaweilk is a concrete replica of a Burmese royal barge built in 1972. It houses a buffet restaurant today. We were given 15 minutes to roam around so here is my sketch with nice photos taken by my colleague.
