Hpa An

Hpa An


Hpa An is the capital of Kayin State. The city is connected to other towns like Kawkareik, Hpapun and Myawaddy by roads and waterway transportation. The singularly distinctive limestone pinnacle forming the Zwegabin Mountain provides a dramatic backdrop for Hpa An. The Kayin people are very fond of the color red, which can be seen on most of the men and women clothing. But nowadays, colourful dresses for both men an women are available giving attractive sight and comfort.

The Kayin "Done Yaein" or the Kayin traditional dance is performed at a brisk pace with verve and soul. This traditional dance is well-known throughout the country for its lively spirit. The sight of men waving their arms and leaping high, in counterpoint to the women twirling handkerchiefs as they sway and trip along gracefully are an amazing interest and joy for the audiences.

Kyaukkanlatt Pagoda and Monastery

The Kyaukkan Latt has also become an interesting tourist destination in Hpa An. The Lumbini Garden with a thousand Buddha Image at the base of a large mountain is also a great place to visit. There is also a historic Kawgoon Cave in this state.

Images and wall carvings can be seen everywhere inside the Kawgoon Cave
