Madaya is a town in the Mandalay Region of central Myanmar. It is the seat of Madaya Township. It lies along National Highway 31.[1][2] Lamaing lies just to the south-east. The Madaya River in the area is connected to the Mandalay Canal, and crosses the township of Madaya diagonally for some 30 miles and joins the Irrawaddy River.[3]

History

In the 16th century, the Gwe Shans built a stockade in the village of Okpo.[4] On October 1, 1886 there was a reported small native garrison at Madaya and nearby Lamaing and the town was subject to invasion the same month.[5][6]
