iSurprise Yangon Heritage Trust

Saving Yangon’s invaluable heritage

Preserve the past for a better future

Triggered by demolition threat of some important historic buildings in Yangon’s city centre, famous local historian Dr. Thant Myint-U and a group of like-minded architects, historians and business people set up the Yangon Heritage Trust dedicated to preserving the city’s unique architectural legacy.

We believe that the conservation of Yangon’s rich architectural heritage plays a vital role in making Yangon one of the most liveable and vibrant cities in Asia.
— Dr. Thant Myint-U
