Maulmain, a town of Tenasserin, in Burmah, near the mouth of the Salween, formerly (when ceded in 1826) only a waste, but now second only to Rangoon in importance. A range of hills rising behind the town affords a pleasant place of residence, with a fine view. The inhabitants are chiefly Buddhists, Hindus, and Mussulmans. There is some ship-building, and teak, copper, lac, horns, hides, rice, and lead are exported.
