Madaya is a town in the Mandalay Region of central Myanmar. It is the seat of Madaya Township. It lies along National Highway 31. Lamaing lies just to the south-east. The Madaya River in the area is connected to the Mandalay Canal, and crosses the township of Madaya diagonally for some 30 miles and joins the Irrawaddy River.
In the 16th century, the Gwe Shans built a stockade in the village of Okpo. On October 1, 1886 there was a reported small native garrison at Madaya and nearby Lamaing and the town was subject to invasion the same month.
