General Information
The Magway Division also spelt Magwe, is a division located in central Myanmar between north latitude 18o50' and 22o 47' and east longitude between 93o4' and 95o 55'. The Magway Division is the largest of Myanmar's seven divisions, with an area of 17,305 sq miles. It is bordered by Sagaing Division is to its north, Mandalay Division to its east, Bago Division to its south and Rakhine State and Chin State to its west. 
The broad valley of Magway collects rivers and streams from both western and eastern hills, that flow into the Ayeyarwaddy. Some streams are small and have almost no water in the dry season. The whole central plain is made up of sedimentary and rocks deposited by the Ayeyarwaddy. Much of the vegetation are shrubs and bushes, and small trees. However the western and eastern hills are covered by open low level rain forests.
Fossils of the early primates over 40 million years old were excavated in the Pondaung and Ponnya areas in Magway Division, leading the government to proclaim that "Myanmar is the birthplace of humanity in the world". About 2000 years old ancient city, Beikthanoe, is located in Taungdwingyi Township, Magway Division. The most famous leader of Burma Bodgyoke Aung San, is from Magway Division, Nate Mauk Township. One of the most famous pagodas Mya Tha Lwan is also situated in Magway. The history of Magway Division mirrors that of the other divisions of central Myanmar.
