Traditional lake architecture

At Inle Heritage’s heart is a lovingly reconstructed Inthar home which hosts exhibitions of local artists’ works.

Inthar-Heritage-House
Built from reclaimed wood and modelled on the former home of Inle Heritage’s founder, Inthar Heritage House celebrates the unique architecture, and creative depth of the region.

The ground floor houses part of our Burmese cat reintroduction programme as well as a gift shop presenting original craftwork from local artisans.

Alongside our traditional restaurant, which spreads over the veranda, balconies and rooms of the first floor, is a recreation of U Saung’s room. It now sometimes serves as a home for honoured guests. Across from this is a small library of writings about the region.

 

A quiet shrine located off the first floor veranda is available to visitors.

The central room of the first floor hosts a revolving exhibition programme of local artists’ work. Most works are available to purchase – enquire on the premises or contact us.
