Tawngpeng


Tawngpeng
   (Taungpeng)
   Located west of the old Shan State of Hsenwi, Tawngpeng was described as a "Shan State," though most of its inhabitants were Palaung and it was ruled by a Palaung sawbwa. Its capital, Namhsan, contained the ruler's haw, which was destroyed in World War II. With an area of 2,430 square kilometers (938 square miles), Tawngpeng was rich because of the cultivation of tea, enjoyed throughout Burma, and the Bawdwin silver mine in the hills around Namhsan.
