info Taungoo is a city in the Bago Division of Myanmar, located 220 km from Yangon, towards the northern end of the division, with mountain ranges to both east and west. The main industry is in forestry products, with teak and other hardwoods extracted from the mountains.

The city is also known for its areca palms, to the extent that a Burmese proverb for unexpected good fortune is equated to a “betel lover winning a trip to Taungoo”.

King Mingyinyo founded Taungoo (Kaytumadi) in 1510 AD. Although few visible historic remains survive, Taungoo was once the capital of one of the most powerful post-Bagan Burmese kingdoms, over which seven kings reigned for a period of 155 years. All the four sides of the brick city wall remain, with the exception of the part of the southern wall. The 9.6 m wide moat is dried up, except in some of its sections on the eastern side, where it is purposely kept and properly maintained.

The eastern portion of Taungoo district is the home to many Kayin.
