Street Stretching To Sule Pagoda

Straight street stretching to Sule Pagoda

Sule Pagoda was seen at the end of the street

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

The wide street called Maha Bandula stretched straight. The name of the street derived from the name of a commander-in-chief of the Royal Burmese Armed Forces. Because he was a resistance to the British, this street was named after his name. Perhaps, this street was called as a different name before the independent. Along with the growing nationalism, the names of the streets were often renamed from a western name to a nationalistic name in former colonies. In India, even some cities were renamed. I wondered how the British people thought about the fact.

I stopped on the pedestrian bridge and watched the traffic from above. The golden Sule Pagoda was seen at the end of the street. The traffic was not so high. And some pedestrians crossed the street in a leisurely way.
