Dalla Township (Burmese: ဒလ မြို့နယ်, pronounced: [dəla̰ mjo̰nɛ̀]) is located on the southern bank of Yangon river across from downtown Yangon, Myanmar. The township, made up of 29 wards, is bounded by the Yangon river in the north and east, the Twante Canal in the west, and Twante Township in the south. Despite its strategic location near Yangon, the township is still largely rural and undeveloped mainly because it still lacks a bridge across the Yangon river.
Dalla has 30 primary schools and two high schools.[1]
It was, as Dalla, the site of the major shipyard of the Irrawaddy Flotilla Company.[2]
