Design of Karaweik Palace

Karaweik Palace was inspired by the Burmese pavilion displayed at the 1970 World Exposition in Osaka, Japan. That display was itself inspired by the Pyi Gyi Mon Royal Barge used for ceremonial processions in Mandalay. Karaweik Palace takes its name from the mythical birds from Burmese folklore that adorn the front of the barge.
