Suphayalat's Mausoleum

Memorial in Yangon

This traditional-style multitiered construction contains the tomb of Burma’s last queen, Suphayalat (1859–1925). Having been exiled to India with her husband and daughters in 1885, she was allowed to returned to Rangoon in 1919, three years after King Thibaw's death, but was kept under house arrest by the British colonial authorities until her own passing.
