Karaweik Hall - postcard from Myanmar

This is my first postcard from Myanmar and also has become one of my favorite cards. Thanks to Ms. Thitar Aung, Myanmar for this wonderful postcard.

The floating Karaweik Restaurant on Kandawgyi (Royal) Lake is one of the landmarks of Yangon. This modern architecture of a mythical creature Karaweik Hall was constructed in 1972.  This is the concrete replica of The Royal Barge, which is depicted in many stamps of Myanmar and also in a banknote.  This whole building was gilded with gold about 20 years ago. Karaweik Hall will serve lunch and dinner with Myanmar, Chinese, Eastern and Western cuisine at moderate prices. It is also an excellent idea to examine the beauty of this royal barge and the stunning view of the Shwedagon. Traditional dance performances are normally held here in the evenings.
