Slice of India's History tucked away in a small corner of Yangon

I was very glad that we visited the tomb, as it was not on the list of recommended sites. It is mainly of historical significance, related the the Mughal Empire, the British colonization of India and Myanmar, and the movement of the respective kings to each other's country to eliminate their power. This is not a mini Taj Mahal! It... More

Bahadur Shaw Zafar was the last Mogul Emperor of India. He was the symbolical leader of the 1957 fight for freedom (British call it mutiny).He was a great poet and is revered by Muslims and Hindus alike.

A sad place for an Emperor. One can imagine it was not magnificent when he used to live there. Full of historical significance & lessons. Some rare photographs hanging on the walls, not well-maintained. The grave lies beneath ground level--we hear it was discovered after many years. A false grave is on the upper level with the graves of his... More

I knew that British sent last Burmese king to India, and vice versa. However I didn't know that the last Indian king became a Sufi Saint. And high ranking officials from all decedents of British India - India, Pakistan, Bangladesh - paid a call when they visit Burma (Myanmar) - Nehru, Gen Musharraf, Sheik Hasina. I didn't know that the... More

There is basically nothing to see. The only intersting thing would be to read a little bit about history. I have been very badly welcomed. I have been asked for donnation in a quite brutal way. In addition, it is far away from other things. Definitly not worth a detour.

Very interesting place for all Indians as the tomb of last Indian Emperor. Believe Netaji also started his lecture to INA team from here. Must take a local tourist map from Hotel where it is marked and show to Taxi driver. Else not many knows this place as it does not pertain to Burma local interest. Read history of this... More

This is quite hard to find, but worth it if you are interested in the history of the British Raj and its complex relationship with the Mughal Empire.

Give the location correctly -Zi Wa Ka Street. My taxi - driver was Muslim and knew it as Zafar Baba ka Mazaar. The last Mughal emperor was, and is revered among Muslims as a Sufi saint, a MURSHID, someone who can guide others on the spiritual path of meditation and insight meditation. His deepest sorrow was dying away from his... More
