YANGON, Nov. 1 (Xinhua) -- The Ministry of Religious Affairs and Culture will display the accessories of King Mindon Min of Myanmar at the Mya Nan San Kyaw palace (the Royal Palace) in Mandalay of central Myanmar, director of the ministry U Arkar Kyaw said on Wednesday.
To display those items, donors were invited to donate royal items with the relevant evidence and they will be presented with certificates and cash of honor for donating royal accessories that have been preserved for generations, he said.
"Our department already has the king's equipment, but we can display a variety of equipment with donated items," he added.
With this collection of antique royal accessories, generations in every era could learn about this and all the antiques could be viewed in one place, U Arkar Kyaw said.
King Mindon Min was the king of Myanmar from 1853 to 1878 and he built the Royal Palace as the first palace in Mandalay from 1857 to 1859 when he transfered his capital from Amarapura. ■
