  Yangon Central Railway Station

 

Myanmar

The Yangon Central Railway Station (fig.) was first built by the British in 1877, but was then destroyed by them in 1943 during WWII, as they retreated to India when Japanese enemy forces were advancing.

 

Though initially in Victorian style, it was in 1954 rebuilt in traditional Burmese style, with tiered roofs known as pyatthat (fig.) and is now the largest railway station in Myanmar.
