Kandawgyi Garden or Kandawgyi Nature Park is located on Natmauk Road and Kandawgyi Kanpat Road.
The Kandawgyi lake placidly reflect the sky changing colour with the time of the day and the golden spire the Shwe Dagon Pagoda over the tops of the green woods lining its banks. At dawn the lake is silver shrouded in pearly grey mists tinged with the pink of the first sunbeams. At sunset the water looks like liquid-gold with depths of red fire. To combine the natural beauty of the lake and the sublime beauty of Myanmar traditional architecture. the Government of the Union of Myanmar built a royal barge in the form of Karaweik (mythical bird) in 1972. In ancient times. the barges were used in royal parades. to transport Buddhist Scriptures or covey some regal missive to a distant outpost.
