Tigyaing (Htigyaing) is a town situated in eastern Sagaing Division, northern Myanmar (Burma). It is a port on Irrawaddy River and administrative seat of Tigyaing Township.
In 1277, when the Mongols invaded Burma for the first time, they were forced by the excessive heat to turn back at Htigyaing which was taken later together with Tagaung in 1283 leading to the fall of Kingdom of Bagan. In 1891 Saopha of Wuntho rose in rebellion and attacked Kawlin which forced the British to fall back on Tigyaing.
Shwebo-Myitkyina road's Katha-Htigyaing section has been shortened in recent years from 93 km (58 miles) to just over 42 km (26 miles) by Mezar Bridge that links Tigyaing with Indaw. Rubber, teak plantations and rice paddies constitute the main agricultural activities in the region.
In Tigyaing travelers can climb Pagoda Hill to get memorable views of Irrawaddy River.
