Secretariat Renovation Tour
Yangon Secretariat also called Ministers’ Building was the home and administrative seat of British Burma. It was also the theater of tragic event, where General Aung San and Six cabinet ministers were assassinated on 19 July 1947. Since then, this significant building has always been closed, except for two days a year on Martyr’s Day; the commemoration of the heroes killed.

The renovation is expected to be finished in the year 2020.
