Portrait of Monywa

Monywa is a city in Sagaing Division, Myanmar, and located 136 km north-west of Mandalay on the eastern bank of the Chindwin River. It is along the Mandalay-Budalin branch railway line but is best reached by bus as the road from Mandalay is in reasonably good shape. Monywa is a major trade center for agricultural produce from the surrounding Chindwin Valley, especially beans, orange pulses and jiggery (palm sugar). In addition, the local industry includes mills for the production of cotton, flour, noodles, and edible oils. Monywa's rough cotton blankets are famous throughout Myanmar. Other regional crafts include bamboo and reed products, bullock carts and agricultural implements.

One of the most appealing perspectives of Burmese people is their willingness to help without discrimination. They never think of getting profits or advantages from others. They are contented with their life and they do have sympathy and empathy and are always willing to give a helping hand to one another without expecting any benefit for themselves. That’s how the Burmese people are trained according to Buddha’s wisdom. But now many different cultures and traditions from all over the world has invaded our country through media and from other various aspects, therefore in some developed area of Myanmar, especially the people living in the city have changed a lot and has forgotten to maintain our tradition and culture. They are take pride on their changed attitude and appearance influenced by foreign countries.
