Shwe Nandaw Kyaung - The Golden Palace, one of few original buildings of the Royal Palace remaining intact. King Mindon died in the Shwe Nandaw Kyaung. After the King's death, his son and successor Thibaw moved the building to its present location. It is almost entirely constructed of intricately carved teak, and was once completely gilded inside and out, as was almost all of King Mindon's Golden City. The outer guilding is now mostly washed away, and the untreated teak is darkly tanned by the sun but, much of the gilding still remains inside.
