Bago City

Bago was formerly known as Pegu. It is just 80 km (50 miles) north of Yangon and about an hour drive from Yangon. Bago is one of the richest archaeological sites in Myanmar.
Apparently Mons were the first to settle at this site. Two Mon brothers Thamala and Wimala from Thaton first founded the city about 825 A.D. Bago was made the capital of the Mon Kingdom and it came to be known as Hansavati (Hanthawaddy). It was also the seaport of ancient Mon kings. Then it became the Second Myanmar Empire founded by King Bayinnaung.
