Railway family’s compound
This neighbourhood is home to over one hundred railway-worker families from the Insein Myanmar Railways Locomotive Workshop. The compound is completely self-sufficient, on site you’ll find a pre-school, nursery and a police station in a hundred-year-old teak building.
Next to the police station is a well-kept and productive vegetable garden, maintained by U Hla Aung: “I worked as a ‘Tat-Kyat-Kyee’ police officer for 42 years, now I’m looking after the railway community garden”.
