NwarHtoGyi Township is a township of Myingyan District in the Mandalay Division of Burma Natogyi (Burmese: နွားထိုးကြီး; MLCTS: {{{MLCTS}}}).

History

In the Myanmar year 763 (1401/02), the town was called "Nwa_Dho" (Burmese: နွားဓိုရ်) as a village. Its meaning comes from Nwa = Cow and Dho = Herd, so the village which herds the cow according to some researchers. Some named the village as Nwa_To (Burmese: နွားတိုး) meaning Nwa = Cow and To = Prospered because the villager prospered by breeding the cow. There is a presumption as the name was changed Nwa_Dho to Nwa_To to Natogyi described by the Shin_Pin_Tha_Dohn_Oo pagoda's bell inscription in 1267 in Myanmar era (1905 A.D). It was demarcated by 6 wards, 64 village tracts and 186 villages by the order No. 103/49 branch(1) by the Ministry of Home Affairs and Religious Affairs on July 31, 1972.
