An Asian Civilisations Museum Lecture by Elizabeth Moore
The Mon Cities and Myanmar Cultural Heritage
Traditions of the Mon cities of Lower Myanmar reach back to early settlers from India, and ceramics produced in the area were traded internationally. The Mon-era Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon continues to be the most venerated place of pilgrimage and donation in the country. The legacy of the Mon cities has been and remains a significant part of Myanmar’s cultural heritage. Come discover more about the Mon at this special visiting scholar lecture.
