Colonial architecture

Circular Road is one of the richest hunting grounds for the town’s colonial architecture. Some of the buildings have retained their old function, such as the grand Croxton Hotel (now renamed the Gandamar Myaing Hotel) and the No. 4 Basic Education High School, both on Circular Road. Others have changed function: the British Club on Anawrahta Road is now the government-owned Candacraig Hotel, worth popping inside for its hunting-lodge vibe. An old single-storey mansion on Cherry Street is now the Seventh-Day Adventist Church.
