What travelers say:

It was once the palace of the last leader of the Shan ethnic group. It was built with teak wood and brick, which symbolizes imperial power. In the museum hall are displayed portraits and thrones of the couple of Shan leaders who ruled the Inle Lake area until the beginning of the last century.

Additional Information

Introduction

It used to be the palace of a Shan chief, built of teak and bricks that symbolize imperial power. It is now a museum with exhibits about Shan leaders, Inle Lake and the Shan people. The museum hall houses the portraits and thrones of the Shan chief and his wife, who ruled the Inle Lake area until the beginning of the last century. There are also a lot of Shan furnishings and impetuousness, and there is a teak-floored auditorium in the south wing, which are all worth seeing.
