and boosting national prestige. He suggested that the township administration, the township development committee and community elders, with the approval of the Bago Region government, work in collaboration with the Culture Ministry and Agriculture and Irrigation Ministry to renovate the moat. He added that the Tatmadaw will provide necessary help. According to historical records, the Taungoo moat is around 2240 meters from east to west, and around 1,600 meters from south to north.
