Yangon was known as Rangoon since British time up until 1990. The British made Rangoon the capital of Burma (Myanmar). As Rangoon is the seat of British administration, the British built a number of office Buildings: Secretariat building, High Court, Telegraph Office, Central Post Office, the Head Quarters of the Irrawaddy flotilla Company, Revenue Department, Railway Department, Customs House, etc., and the other buildings include banks, markets, churches, hospitals, the university, schools, and private residences of the British administrators which still can be seen in their respective colonial architectural styles. This is the reason while it has to be known as the most concentrated British colonial buildings from the 19th century and the turn of the 20th century in Southeast Asia.
