Lakes in Yangon
Yangon has two large city centre lakes. Inya Lake, located 9.2 km by road to the north of Yangon Central Railway Station, is the larger of the two lakes. The lake was original created to be a reservoir during the time of British colonial rule. The project was completed in 1883. The area around Inya Lake is the most prestigious real estate in Yangon with properties on the lakeside owned by numerous military and political leaders including Aung San Suu Kyi. There also is a popular public park on the south side of Inya Lake near Yangon University which is famous for being somewhere the university students go on dates.
The other major lake in Yangon is the smaller Kandawgyi Lake, located 2.2 km by road to the north of Yangon Central Station, which is fed by pipes from the larger Inya Lake. Like Inya Lake, Kandawgyi Lake was created during British rule to provide the city with water. Around the edge of the lake is Bogyoke Park on the north side, and Yangon Zoological Garden on the south west side. The other notable feature of Kandawgyi Lake is the Karaweik Palace, which is a concrete replica of the Pyigyimon royal barge built between 1972 and 1974. Karaweik Palace is now used a buffet restaurant.
