Add a Point to the Map

Mrauk U is a medieval town and archaeological site in Rakhine State, Myanmar. It was formerly known as Myohaung. All foreign nationals must pay a US$5 fee for their stay in Mrauk U.

Mrauk U (literally, and no one knows why, Mrauk-U means monkey's egg!) may seem to be a sleepy village today but not so long ago it was the capital of a reasonable sized empire where Portuguese, Dutch, and French traders rubbed shoulders with the literati of Bengal and Mughal princes on the run.
