This place is one of several links of Yangon with India, apart from Indian food and people. It is located close to Shwedagon Pagoda, and in it lies the tomb of the last emperor of Mughal India. There are people seated inside and chatting with one another, quite a peaceful setting.

Indian King was exiled to Yangon and he lived here and died secretly though he was great king in India. This kind was talented in writing poem, and very religious at his last days. One can learn his philosophy about life and understanding of the meaning of the life. Top ranked people from India pay a visit where they are... More

This is a small shrine, being refurbished (or indeed built) to the last King of Delhi (not the last Emperor of India, as the inscription says - this was of course King George VI). He was a sufi poet and mystic (and a vbery good poet, judging by the translations on the walls) who had the misfortune to be caught... More

Nothing important to see or experience here. This mugal king was moved from India to Burma, once the British took over India. Knowing the history of British era in India and Burma helps; particularly about the King of Burma being kept as a prisoner in Ratnagiri, India.

This is the tomb of Bahadur Shah Zafar the last mughal emperor of India who was exiled here. There is absolutely nothing special in this place though it does have historical significance. Our guide took us there as we are Indian and we barely stayed there for five minutes. The top part has the tombs of the emperor's wife and... More

A tragic site where the remains of the last Moghul Emperor, lies away from his home land India.Moved to tears recalling the torture and suffering he went through during his days of exile here.The tomb is well maintained and many people from India come to pay homage.A historical site.

A work colleague from Bangladesh told me about this place - this was my second trip to Yangon and I'd not been aware of this interesting piece of Anglo-Indian colonial history. I got the sense that they don't get a lot of Western tourists and I felt a bit like I was intruding as this is a place of prayer.... More

Worth a visit for some historical value, but when I was there, no one spoke English, which left one to read the plaques for explanations.

Must visit place for Muslims. This is a tomb of an Emperor. In past he has everything. But during death he had nothing. Going there to pray as now none has to pray for him and his families. Read about the place but now i have visited.
