Inya Lake

   Known during British colonial times as Victoria Lake, Inya Lake is a large body of water located in the north-central part of Rangoon (Yangon), bounded on the east by Kaba Aye Pagoda Road and on the west by Pyay (Prome) Road. The Main Campus of Rangoon (Yangon) University lies to the lake's southwest, and on the shores of the lake are residences of prominent people, including Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and-before the coup d'état attempt of March 2002-the family of Burma's deceased ruler, Ne Win.
