Rakhine State

It is the western coastal region of Myanmar and apart from main-land Myanmar by means of Rakhine mountain-rages. Local histories and traditions said that their earliest settlement was much earlier than the period of Gautama Buddha (about 5000-6000 years B.P), and the coinages and inscriptions show that there were kings and city-states in Rakhine about 4th century A.D. Most of the kings were, similar to Pyu kings, entitled with Suriya or Canda. Today, the historic buildings and ancient cities could be studied as Mrauk-U, Vesali and so on while Sittway (Akyab formerly) is the capital of Rakhine State.
