Ministers' Building

The Ministers' Building (Burmese: ဝန်ကြီးများရုံး; also called the Ministers' Office; formerly The Secretariat or Secretariat Building), was the home and administrative seat of British Burma, in downtown Yangon, Burma. Built in the late 1800s, the structure is more than 120 years old. It was where Aung San and 6 cabinet ministers were assassinated on 19 July 1947, now commemorated as Burmese Martyrs' Day. The building is currently on the Yangon City Heritage List and completely abandoned. It occupies an entire city block, bounded by Anawrahta Road to the north, Theinbyu Road to the east, Maha Bandula Road to the south and Bo Aung Kyaw Street to the west.
