When you visit Mandalay, you will definitely see this square shape Moat. It can be seen very clearly from Google Earth, a giant square shape beside Mandalay Hill. The wall protects the Grand palace which is the last palace/capital of Myanmar Kingdom and occupied by British in 1885.
These photos were taken on different days. I would like to compile into one post for those who love Mandalay.

It is not easily accessible to Grand palace inside the moat but easy for those come with tour buses or guided tours. If you want to go inside by yourself, the security guard will ask you the reason of visiting and check your bag for security reason. Because most of the people living inside the moat are military officials and their family.
